Every other Wednesday the day I live for I got to the hospital they cut my cast off of my foot then for an actual half an hour I get to let me foot cool down with out the really heavy cast on it. Feels so good. LOL of course once it cools down they take tempeture reading from my good foot and the foot with Charcots, maybe send me for an xray then put another ton of fiberglass back on so I can wait for another 2 weeks for my half an hour of freedon. I am hoping this week they can do something about pain. May have to go to a pain managment practice since because of a heart condition am limited to what pain killers I can take and those that I can don't work or make me real dizzy but do nothing for the pain. At first it wasn't bad it would come and go but has been constant for a few weeks now. Which unfortunately the docotor says is not a good sign. But hey if I wanted good news probably wouldn't ask a doctor for it. This is tough because they can't give me answers. How long will I be in a cast, anywhere from another month or 2 years. Will it heel with out surgery, maybe. Will I be able to walk normally or need a shoe or brace? maybe. Diabetes was easy exercise your butt off and it went away. It was instant gratification could eat what ever I wanted spend 30 minutes in the gym and my BS would be around 70. Now have to just sit and wonder. Honestly even when I started first going to the gym and went twice a day 7 days a week. It felt easier than the pills and the insulin and I felt better. My a1c was always right at 5. Now am around 6.5 and have to micro manage food and meds and really just don't feel well soince not getting that endorphin blast all the time. Not sure what is worse being depressed or the depression meds my body doesn't seem to like them at all, we tried a couple and all caused severe panic attacks which I don't get with out the meds. so doctor not sure what to do about that either. Oh well Wednesdays coming soon, thanks for reading and have a great day.
