Sports Doctor-Worst kind of stress fracture

After getting the MRI done yesterday I had to see a Sports Doctor today to get his opinion.

He decided that MRI was not conclusive proof of a Stress Fracture and I needed a bone scan as well. Oh someone please shoot me. That will be the fourth and last one this Doctor promises.

As to keeping fit he suggests the bike and the pool. Champion triathlete in training. Yeah right...
I suggested long fast walks and got the NO. Too much impact stress.

He can't tell me until he gets the bone scan results whether I can go ski-ing or play a lot of golf on my holiday in NZ.

He said because my stress fracture is the anterior of the tibia that is the worst kind. But has to see the bone scan.

Have to try next week to get an appointment as you need 3 hrs in between visits as they inject you with god only knows what.

All I can say sports fans is nothing. I'm crying on the inside. I have no pain walking which is at least a start.
Stay tuned for further updates.

la, la la la la la. Anterior tibia stress fractures are a walk in the park, try getting a proximal tibia stress fracture. Although femoral SFs are meant to be a real shit.

BTW - GET A BONE SCAN FROM DAY 1. SAVE YOURSELF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS AND GET DIAGNOSED FAST.

Skiing? Of course you can go skiing! Last year when TA had her stress fracture, she just boarded for 20 minutes and then took her boots off and sat with her leg in the snow for 20 minutes...!!
