Today, I went to the doctor about my ankle. I got x-rayed and there were no broken bones. In fact, he said my bones looked in great shape.
After much poking and prodding, he decided I had a stretched or partially torn ligament that was inflamed.
I really liked Dr. Graham. He explained what was wrong and showed me where the ligament attached to the bone.
He also prescribed a course of steroids. He explained how to take them and the side effects. I have never had a doctor explain side effects so well. He also gave suggestions on how to control the side effects.
I need to see him after the FROG Rally, so we will be back in Effingham after the rally.
The good news, I was doing the right things, ice, elevation, and compression. I started wearing a brace to help support my ankle. The doctor wants me to keep all of that up as well.
