If you recall my recent post about Morton’s Neuroma, you’ll be happy to hear that the pain from the treatment has subsided, and the pain from the neuroma also seems lessened.
In short, the borderline-excruciating treatment was actually worth it. I’m walking without favoring the foot now. It still pinches a bit when I run or stand tippy-toe, but it feels like the cortizone is doing its job.
This almost certainly means I’m due for another excruciating, limp-inducing shot in January, and perhaps again in February. Repeated cortizone treatments seem to be indicated if the first one is effective.
If you recall my slightly more recent post about the lipoma in my arm, you’ll be happy to hear that the stitches are driving me crazy, and I’m half-ready to pull them out myself. There’s no way I’m waiting until a week from Monday to have them removed. They keep rubbing on my clothing and my bedsheets, irritating me and irritating the wound (which is a healthy shade of pink, and not oozing one little bit.)
I’ll probably go after them with tweezers, an X-Acto blade, and a dental pick (these tools for working on miniatures are so dang handy) sometime on Tuesday. Don’t tell Doctor Harline. I don’t think he reads this blog yet, so I should be able to get away with it.
