Day 4: Wrapped like a mummy

My foot looks like a wrapped mummy. The yellow thing that is covering my skin is some kind of paste that is suppose to keep my foot from moving too much.

Actually it works. Usually I would wake up with a stiff leg but ever since I used that the past two nights, it's been pretty helpful in my healing process. I can walk a bit without my crutches but it sure still hurts a lot after that. I am still limping. The bruise has not subsided and the swelling hasn't also. But I am kinda upbeat that I can still limp around without my crutches. Although I still have cramps on my shin and calve sometimes. Probably due to lack of movement on my leg.

Day 3: A trip to the doctor in crutches

Today I got an assessment from a doctor. It wasn't good. The swelling hasn't gone down and he told me to rest more. If the swelling and pain still persist, I might even have to go see a 'sports' doctor.

He got a nurse to do some kind of 'pressure' bandage on my foot to relieve the swelling.

I think it is going to be a long time before I get to see any improvement from my foot. Hard enough already that I have to limp around in my crutches, my arms get really tired moving around. If they had a mutant gene to heal this wound, it would be so cool.

Day 2: Getting used to my crutches

Waking up this morning is a real pain, I can't even put my right foot down without feeling an intense pain. I took a bath sitting down on a chair, and had to make my own breakfast which took a pretty long time because I had to go in and out of the kitchen to take out the bread, nutella, water..... haizz.. When all was set on the table, I just slumped on the chair, trying to catch my breath.

Maybe I am trying to keep up with the speed I usually walk, but I was hungry, and when you are hungry you usually put in that extra effort to get your food.

Anyway, I took a look at my foot and it looks pretty bruised and swollen. Trust me, it looks even worse 'live'. The other side of my foot also looks bruised, but I didn't bother to take it because I had trouble taking proper photo of it at that angle.

So, looks like it's goona take some time before I can start running again. Gosh I so miss running....

Can you sing these Thai songs?

Seriously, is this even allowed?

Can you sing this while you are watching that?

I am now in crutches

Yup, another pair of legs to walk and I ain't going any faster.

I had a pretty bad fall playing basketball, although I can't recall exactly what happened, but I remembered going after the ball with my fren who was my opponent. He was dribbling the ball actually, and he ran quite fast, so I did my super speedy chase to block him off, but somehow we collided and next thing I knew I was on the ground, clutching my right ankle. Oh the pain was excruciating, it took me a while to stand up and I had to laugh it off to numb the pain off.

Anyway, took a trip at A&E, doc said there was no fracture although he said my ligaments might be pulled pretty bad since I couldn't put my foot down properly without cringing in pain. So an appointment is set for me to go to see a doc at polyclinic.

Now, I am walking with crutches and it isn't easy. Walking with an extra pair of legs really takes a lot of energy. Looks easy but it ain't, now I know how much difficult it is doing simple actions at home. Heck, I had trouble taking my apple juice from the fridge, not to mention the difficulty of wearing shorts. I think I should just wearing a sarong.
