Ice Ice Baby
Mar 21, 2013
... My "vast" experience is that icing 20 minutes at a time is super useful for reducing my swelling. Walking in a shoe with crutches SWELLS my foot, as does my morning foot exercises, and this quick icing and elevation makes a dramatic difference. I now do it 3X a day, since Monday. ... (5 replies)

... In case anyone is curious, after reviewing some "Explanation of Benefits" statements I believe I know how much my arthroscopic debridement and microfracture cost at "list price." Physician fee(s): $2,686 Facilility/supplies fee: $5,050 Follow up office visit + "surgical" $607 Total before insurance: $8,343 This does not include earlier or future imaging studies. Not...

... Like other people on this thread i'm wondering what type of surgery to get, if I should even get surgery. I've posted on a couple other threads but have been unsucessful with no replies. I'm fifteen years old and was told I had OCD of the ankle in the medial side of the talus. I was then was given crutches and a cam boot and was non-weight bearing for 6 weeks to see if the...

... Even though I live in the OC, my surgeon is a podiatrist at the Palo Alto Medical Foundation clinic in Mountain View, CA (they have 4 or 5 locations). That's one reason I waited until summer, so my family could join me for a month. My employer's HQ is close to the clinic so I visit Silicon Valley often and used to live there. I am also surprised at going FWB after only 11... (84 replies)

... Mrs.Heidi: Hope you got a date convenient for you. My surgery date is today. Trying to remember if I have everything I need... ice packs, crutches, handicapped parking card, prescription painkillers, magazines I haven't had a chance to read, extra movies from NetFlix, etc. I'm sure I forgot something. Maybe next week I'll decide I need crutch pads or a knee scooter. (84 replies)
... Yesterday the doc (#2) showed me the latest MRIs side-by-side, and lo and behold the cysts do look a little smaller, and the amount of edema (inflamation) in the talus appears to be less. The cartilage defect appears to be the same size, though again it's hard to even be sure how big that is because it's a MRI, plus I have no experience reading MRIs. The radiologist wrote... (84 replies)
... so another MRI shouldn't change anything. Want to know it got bigger. If not, getting surgery won't feel so urgent. If bigger, I might ask for the boot and crutches early. If much bigger, will switch to OATS. ... (84 replies)
... Thanks Velvetrain and Roxygirl1! :D I guess I was just really surprised and taken off guard this week. I knew going into the surgery that it would be a long recovery. I have tons of books and craft projects and I love my home and being home. Usually I'm working so many hours and commuting that I don't feel like I ever get to be home - so I was thinking I would enjoy... (12 replies)
... Seriously I had no idea how much my surgerey affected my mental state and outlook. I cried a few times mostly at night because I saw myself as a true handicapped person. I didn't like losing my independence. I didn't like that I was always at the whim of someones elses schedule. I hated being dependent on someone else. I hated that fiberglass cast that I was stuck in. I got a... (12 replies)

Using crutches
Jul 8, 2009
... I've never taken care of a baby on crutches, but have babysat on them and even though I don't think I could have done it alone fully on the crutches I did push the stroller without tooooo much problems. It took some practice but if you have one where the handles can sit on either hip it kind of works... ... (19 replies)

... I also crochet, so a couple of baby blankets were done...that's about it though. I didn't really feel up to doing much else. ... (35 replies)
... I also used the Turning Leg Caddy and am so glad that I found out about it before having surgery. I liked how it was designed compared to the Rollabout or RollerAid. I have a pretty open floor plan in my home, so I could scoot all over. It was also very convenient putting in/getting out of the car and I used it a lot going to restaurants, etc. I hardly even touched my crutches... (16 replies)
... Yeah she is a real trooper (the nine year old) Our laundry facility is in the bottom of our building and yesterday I taught her how to do the laundry. She's actually excited about that. I've been practicing trying to cart the nine month old around. So far I came up with carrying her in a snuggly (the body harness thing that hold the baby in front of you). I practiced...
