Broken ankle update

We just got back from Panorama Orthopedics and Spine Center. I broke my Medial Melleolus on my left ankle. The doctor said surgery isn’t necessary so long as the bone doesn’t shift, which is highly unlikely unless it’s subjected to and kind of brunt trauma.

In the meantime, the doc gave me a prescription for Vicodin and Lovenox. Lovenox is an anticoagulant that’s to prevent my blood from clotting and killing me. Unfortunately I have to take the Lovenox as an injection because we’re flying back to Austin on Saturday and an oral dose wouldn’t take effect in time. Yay! Breaking my ankle was painful. The pain and swelling has been painful. And now I have to give myself a shot in the stomach for the next 10 days.
