last week i took a goofyesque spill at work. i thought i would improve day by day and i also expected my employer to be sympathetic since it was their fault!!
6 days on and i am still limping, i can’t go to the gym, my activities are restricted and i am still in pain. i can feel myself getting frustrated, cranky and short tempered from the lack of improvement.
i have persistant and localized pain on the back of my left leg, it’s aching and depending on my activity, pulling. walking flat or going down stairs? not too bad. going up stairs? nearly brings tears to my eyes
after being unable to get a doctor’s appointment til next week, i used one of my new contacts in the emergency dept. she got me fast tracked (2 hours) and when the time came to change into a gown for a thorough check of my back and hips…imagine my surprise when i noticed a little bruising behind my knee.
imagine the words that came out of my mouth when i saw the edge of deep purple bruising down my leg~from my ass to my knee.
