Over the last couple of weeks I have wondered when in my recovery process I would feel like I qualified to say "I am no longer injured."
Ostensibly this conversation is valid, and not an insignificant concern for athletes returning from long-term injury.
Realistically I was getting ahead of myself, although I didn't know it until this Monday.
I'm broken, mostly likely, to some degree, in the same place, for the 5th time since January 1.
My current/second doctor, a podiatrist, is tapping out. My problem is "too sport". He prescribed 3.5 months of conservative treatment, which I followed (exhibit A)(exhibit B), and he doesn't know why it didn't work. With no better idea why it didn't work the previous three times (under a different doctor who was a sports med ...). So I'm moving on up the treatment - and geographic - ladder, referred to Indianapolis-based doctors.
