If this were a movie, nobody would go see it. About two weeks ago, I'm reading a discussion here at good old CC o the "the condiments you couldn't live without" and somebody mentions Hellman's Mayonaise and I think to myself, "man, I haven't had mayo in 20 years and that sounds good!" so I buy this gigantic jar (on sale!) and i can't get the lid off and I try running it under the hot water, etc. and then, boom, it slips right out and lands onto the top of my bare foot.
It hurt but it didn't crazy hurt but it's been 12 days and no improvement so I went for x-rays and i have a fracture in the third metatarsal in the foot and must wear this huge gray surgical boot for at least the next 4 weeks.
While fitting me for the boot, the doctor said to me, "wah wah wah wah wah wah" or something like that because I can literally not remember a single word he said. I was just sitting there thinking, "I have a broken foot?"
Questions for you all: Can I walk around in this thing more than just a few steps? (it doesn't hurt when I do but i haven't gone more than 500 feet). I mean I *can* but would I be hurting my foot more by walking or is it good to walk as much as possible? When i'm not walking, should I still prop it up? Should I still ice my foot at times? (its' not as swollen as it was but still some swelling at end of day). Is there anyway I can stay somewhat active over the next month? I'm used to long daily walks and haven't done that for 12 days and I was already going mentally crazy and not sure how i will go another 30 days.
