2012 was an historically awful for my feet. When we were down in Islamorada for my brother's wedding I severely injured my left foot. I made the horrid (and dangerous) mistake of jumping in one of the pools without fully realizing how deep it was. When I hit the bottom my knees were locked and I took quite a jolt.
At the time I didn't realize that I had hurt myself, but over the subsequent weeks my foot began to hurt more and more. In the end it turned out I had a 2.5 centimeter longitudinal tear in my peroneus brevis tendon and traumatic pantar faciatis. To make a long story short, in the early summer I spent 6 weeks in a hard cast and 2 weeks in a boot. When that didn't work I had surgery in October and then spent 5 weeks in a hard cast and 4 weeks in a boot. I also spent a total of 8 weeks in physical therapy.
Now here I am, a year later, and my poor left foot is finally doing great. I have started really trying to exercise regularly. Turns out I overdid it a bit. I appears that 3 weeks ago during one of my workout I worked a little to long and a little to hard. After suffering through some fairly intense pain I decided to go the my trusty podiatrist.
She believes that I now have a stress fracture in at least one, if not two, of the metatarsals in my RIGHT foot.
I am back wearing that darn boot!
The MRI is scheduled for Friday to verify and then I will learn how long I have to wear this stupid thing!
