How refreshing! A visit to the Hospital to consult someone that not only knows what she's talking about, but enthusiastic about her job as well.
1:00pm saw me ushered into the Physio Dept. at Rake Lane to meet Nicola. After many searching questions and a thorough examination of my legs and feet, she demonstrated that it's a muscle under the ankle that is dodgy - not any of the ligaments. She talked me through the principles and I'm convinced - to my great relief, that it isn't more serious - i.e. another manifestation of the dreaded DISH.
This is just another confirmation that 'consultants' look no bloody further than the 'likliest' candidate, rather than taking a holistic view. It is also apparent that it's probably best to see a proficient physiotherpaist BEFORE waiting months to see a consultant, not to mention of course, that she's a lot prettier!
I've been given some strengthening exercises to do and another visit in 2 weeks time. As a BTW, that means that once again a whole month is eaten into by hospital visits - now 3 before the end of the month.
Any possibility of a 'Grand Tour' now moves to August.
