My Ankle Update

It feels much better this morning.

I do have to go to school today(unfortunatly), but I'm going to wrap my foot and stay off the stairs.

Just because it has two clutches, shifts faster, uses a torque converter or has near-infinite gear ratios, requires less driver intervention and is more efficient doesn't make it better in my opinion.

Good to hear.

But if you aren't walking normally in a few days, consider going to a doctor.

Many years ago, I hurt my ankle playing basketball. I was limping for a week before I decided to go to the doctor. It turns out that I had broken my ankle and I really should not have been walking on it the whole time.

Glad to hear it feels better today, chip. And definitely avoid those stairs.

I am currently dealing with a bad ankle myself. I reinjured a old basketball injury. Originally I had broken it but it wasn't discovered until it was too late so I had to have some loose pieces of bone surgically removed. Otherwise I couldn't walk a block without it swelling up. Needless to say, even with the surgery it has been trouble ever since.

My strong advice: If it swelled up a lot and quickly when you injured it, I strongly suggest you get it xrayed. If it is broken you need to get it cast right away, immobilized. The 6 weeks of a cast are a lot better then a surgery and a lifetime of problems.

I know from experience because at another time I broke my other ankle, had it cast immediately and it isn't a problem now. I don't play much basketball these days.

I've been waiting to hear reports on Macintouch before I update my ankle. Glad to hear yours is working out, chip. =)

I'm surprised your 'rents haven't taken you to have it looked at -- you really need to go.



It is what it is.
