I'm Falling Apart
Right now I have left hip bursitis with some extensive discomfort from the lower back to mid-thigh. Doctor's appointment (round two since August) on Monday.
|IT BURNS LIKE FIRE!|
And keeps me awake at night
Multiple daily stretches means that the pain is reduced, but I can't do a crossover on that side. All I can do is to skate on two feet. So swizzles, and grapevines and pumps--maybe two foot spins--are all I'm able to do.
I also have a bunion on my right big toe. I can actually skate with this (FOR NOW) but;
1. I have rescued it with a toe spacer, tape, a donut callus pad plus a gel tube. That boot is getting crowded in there.
2. Hurt when I skate? Hnh, it hurts when I walk! Inevitably I will have to have have the bunion operated on. My podiatrist is a level 4 Hockey Coach so at least he understands the problems with skater's feet. However, that surgery takes 6 weeks to recover.
What do I mean by 'inevitably? Probably in 3 to 6 months plus recovery.
I was really getting the speed going on my spins too.
So, I may only post once a week when I can find funny topics. My ability to skate is iffy for the nonce.
