After a long week of balancing jobs and school volunteering and everything else, it ended with a little foot surgery.
I had a cyst removed from my right foot on Friday. I have been battling it since I trained for my first half marathon several years ago. I had planned to have it removed in January but it popped and I thought delaying would interfere with my Derby half marathon training, so I waited until now.
Baby is weaned and the deductible has been met, perfect time to sneak it in.
Surgery at the Hospital for Special Surgery is so nice. I felt safe and secure and like everybody knew what was going on. It felt like a spa day. It was so nice to wake up from anesthesia without my nose being packed!
The surgeon called Jason after and told him my cyst was gigantic. So, I think I made the right choice in getting it removed.
Now it’s time for recovery. I am scared to take all the pain meds they prescribed me, so I am just going with a few ibuprofen here and there. Elevating my foot relieves a lot of the pain. I am frustrated I won’t be walking normally for a while because of this dumb sandal boot thing. It is NOT going to cut it, especially in the city and in the cold. Gotta find a way around that challenge and fast.
