The Foot


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.

  1. I hope you are walking without pain soon! I can’t believe the cyst was gigantic! You’ve really put up with it well!
