So, I figured I'd do another quick update for whatever reason, lol. Last week I got the OK from the PT to be able to do groundwork!!! Happy Dance (without using my ankle, lol).
Then today in PT, there was another interesting little discovery.... :/ I don't feel pain like "normal" people. My tolerance is extremely high I guess. So if I say I'm at a 5 on the pain scale (1 = none, 10 = max)I guess it means that most people would say it's way more than 10. How they can tell that, I don't know. And I feel pain differently. Apparently, if I'm feeling sick or "off" for no reason that's when most people would be hitting the good stuff & ice packs, lol.
We found this out today when I almost passed out as the PT was stretching the tendons. They've been feeling REALLY tight, and I'm paranoid I'm going to rip something so they were working on them. Didn't hurt at all! Actually felt pretty good, all of the sudden, flop, down I go. After she did a few things, asked a few ?'s talked to my back Dr who just happened to be around. And that's what they came up with. So who knows what this will all mean....
Honestly doesn't bother me any, just makes it easier for me to keep doing things. Which the older, wiser, less listened to part of me knows is a BAD thing, lol. But hey, if ain't broke, don't fix it? Right? Hahaha
