I wonder if any one has sufferd like this, many years ago now i hurt my right foot doing sport's result was a hairline fractor in my ankle tubeie grip sent home rest and pain killers so over the years its taken a few knocks but nothing to bad , about yrs ago it gave in results were swelling pain like i have never felt in my life xrays done.
Take' me to where i am now i was doing my job on this i had to run i felt some thing rip but i wore laceup boots and there wasnt to much pain so icarried on doing myjob, then about 2yrs back i started falling over my foot seemed to be hurting all the time so my gp gave me muscle relaxents made a comment about my weight age years of walking on it had made it quite weak, from that after many months of going back with the pain he sent me to see a surgen who gave me a MRI scan, the findings were my tendion was ripped my arch had collapesd, 2 bones had fused ,cysts in my bones ,and bones have gone out of line . I have varocous veins in my right leg,night cramp and he told me that i need surgery, ok fine lets do it , 1 yr later unable to work because i carnt stand for long periods of time feeling less than worthless i live alone and am in constant fear of falling down the stairs constant pain i am still am awaiting the surgery to correct this. How much longer do i have to wait will it be to late to fix it i ask questions and dont seem to get any answers this has gone from a straight forward proceedure to a op that is going to take 3hours and is quite complex and still i wait. I fully appreciate that others have more pressing injuries i now am worried because i havent a clue whats going to happen to me the NHS do a brill job have worked all my life and i feel like this. Has anyone any idears of where i go from here.
