Well, I made it to my appointment with Dr. McGorgeous. I explained to him that I can't wear a sock, I have to be careful how water from the shower hits me, that physical therapy hasn't done anything, and that the pain is so bad that I would be willing to take and go through withdrawals from Lyrica again.
He got how much pain I'm in.
And we have a plan. I had an MRI today to rule out anything structural. I have anti-inflammatories and pain killers. I will hopefully be picking up my TENS unit tomorrow. I will keep you all updated on what happens.

I thought you might like to see what exactly is holding my ankle together. Two bigass titanium screws. These were taken at my last appointment, in August, but I just got a copy. Fair warning- I'm probably not going to post in the next couple of weeks. The nerve pain has become unbearable and right now I just need to focus on making it to my next appointment.

Nerve pain can suck it. We are working in physical therapy to desensitize my incision, but a couple therapists have thrown around a diagnosis of Complex Regional Pain Syndrome- or "craps" for short. I don't see Dr. McGorgeous for 3 more weeks, but I'm REALLY hoping this isn't the case.
