Yep, it's broken :(

Just got back from the doctor and my toe is definitely broken :(  They couldn't do anything but tape it to the next toe. Now I just have to wait. No running for at least 7 days. She did say that I can use the elliptical though, as long as I take it easy and stop if I feel any discomfort. Other than that, just keep off it as much as possible and keep it elevated and iced until the swelling goes down.

As for the rest of my visit, this was my follow-up to the sinus infection and weak/dizzy ordeal (which I'm still having) and blood work results. The blood work was fine. I was initially worried because my chlorine something or other was elevated, but she said nothing to worry about there. It seems that my issues are stemming from excessive fluid in my sinuses and ears, so I came home with a crap-load more allergy medications and some fioricet for the migraines that have recently returned. She is sending me for a colonoscopy because of the on-going tummy issues, and it's also time for my first mammogram, eek! And I think that was about it.

I'm thinking the doc should just hook me up to one of these and call it a day ;)
I forgot to post my weigh-in last Wednesday, but nothing has changed. I'm still at 118.8 :)

You take care of yourself. Be gentle on it, and you'll heal faster. Last year, I felt so aggravated with my broken thumb but forced myself to let it heal. It was the good wise decision even though it put me a month backwards fitness-wise. (I didn't dare do any exercise really because my entire balance seemed off due to my thumb. Weird, but true)

Bummer, dude. :( Maybe stationary bike if you have access to one? And some upper body strength training or something?

The doc said take the rest of this week off, but next week I can use the bike and elliptical (anything that doesn't have me lifting my foot). So yes, this is a good time to get started on a strength training routine!

Ugh, hope you've got your feet up, taking it easy! Eh, those mammograms become old hat after a while, but don't let anyone convince you that they don't hurt, just a little.

Feel better!

Yeah the doc said it would be uncomfortable, but since I also need a colonoscopy she said the mammogram would be a piece of cake in comparison. I don't know. At least they put you out for a colonoscopy. I'd prefer not to have either one. Sigh.
