I went to the orthopedist this morning.

He did more x-rays and did lots of poking, pulling, pushing and prodding. Heís not convinced that there might not be another injury that they canít see. He was pleased with progress, but wants to do an MRI tomorrow and wants me to stay off of it until I see him again next week. So I guess Iíll continue to sit in my chair and binge watch tv and/or read books until then. Heís pretty sure Iíll need physical therapy to make sure it continues to heal correctly. I have to share this photo that hangs in the ortho office.

Hopefully he'll have you feeling better very soon.

Where's the sign, "I femur your pain." ? (Sorry, I couldn't resist.)

I hope the MRI gives you the information you need. I am sorry you are stuck sitting for a bit longer. Hang in there. I bet you have a treatment plan soon that will start you on the road to recovery.

A funny sign but your injury isn't so funny. It sounds as if your doc is taking good care of you.

Sorry you need more conclusive testing, but I am hoping that the MRI doesn't show any further injury. Regardless, you will be on the road to a full recovery. Wishing you the best!
