If you’d like to know about my own injury, here’s a link to the inside scoop :) But my daily A-Z posts are more general and informative, just so, if the time comes, you know what someone is going through because, trust me, it’s not ‘just a broken foot!’
ATROPHY - (of body tissue or an organ) waste away, especially as a result of the degeneration of cells, or become vestigial during evolution: 'the calf muscles will atrophy'...... and in my case it really was the calf muscle. It was actually quite scary that in only a couple of weeks my left calf was like wibbly-wobbly jelly!
ACCIDENT - An unfortunate incident that happens unexpectedly and unintentionally, typically resulting in damage or injury: 'he had an accident at the factory' ....... Yep, that pretty much describes how I broke my foot.
ARTHRITIS - A disease causing painful inflammation and stiffness of the joints. The most common area of secondary midfoot arthritis is from Lisfranc injuries, resulting in the degeneration of the 1st, 2nd and 4th tarsometatarsal joints......... So that's something to look forward to!
Insensitivity to pain, especially as artificially induced by the administration of gases or the injection of drugs before surgical operations.
