X-Rays and E-mails

May 31, 2008 at 5:32 pm (blogging, myself & I, rambling, real life, worries/concerns)

I meant to update sooner then today, but I got caught up in some family matters and I actually was working for a few days. I had a 4 day job shakeboard dancing for a pizza place (shakeboard dancing is holding a promotional sign and dancing around), only by the end of the 2nd shift my back and legs were killing me. You’re supposed to dance the entire time…4 hours of dancing and holding a huge sign are not easy. I thought it would be…and the idea of making 14 bucks an hour was certainly appealing but I’m paying for it now. My friend had to take over for me…which sucks. I’m sort of bummed out that I couldn’t even do a four day job.

Anyways, now for the hospital visit update. I went on Tuesday with my mom and Matt…my boyfriend, who wanted to go. I expressed my concern for my ankles and hips, and the doctor sent me for x-rays. Apparently, I’ve been having such problems with my hips because there are several bone growths that act like stoppers and prevent my hips from being as flexible as most people’s hips are. Unfortunately, they can’t do anything about that because if they shave down the bone growths it will make both my hips weak and cause them to break.

My ankles have the same issue as well. They keep locking up because the inside bone of my legs (I forget the medical term; I’m sorry guys…I probably couldn’t spell it anyway) is shorter then the outside bone of my leg and the tumours around my ankles also act as stoppers. I guess that while although these things cause pain, they also support my joints because my ligaments are loose and stretchy.

However, I will be having a surgery at some point this summer. The bone tumour on my ankle that is growing more than any of the other bumps on my body is a cause for concern; and it might help the locking issue if it’s removed. It is safe for the doctors to remove that one. I’m also getting a small tumour removed from my left middle finger; so it’s just a minor surgery that’s only supposed to last about an hour and a half (if all goes well).

So that’s the doctors appointment in T.O. Monday I might have to go to the emergency room if this pain doesn’t let up and get my back x-rayed to see if I really did do something to the discs…since I never did that after the back injury I received last fall.

    That sucks that you had to let your friend take over for you after two days. It sounds like your Drs visit went better than it did last time, so that’s good. I hope the surgeries help with the locking issue and such.

    Sarah – Ya it definitely sucks. šŸ˜¦ I’m bummed out because that’s now 112 bucks that I don’t get. At least I made 137 bucks from the first two days. Yep, the doctors appointment certainly welded better results this time around – and for that I’m definitely thankful!
