I went back to the specialist about my left foot tendonitis the other day.
He asked: "Are you a runner?"
Laughing, I replied "Do I look like I run?"
Perhaps realising the folly of his question he did not respond nor pursue that line of questioning which might have involved other questions about exercise!
This afternoon I have to have an MRI to see if the tendon is torn – I have had this niggling thing for 18 months; I wore a brace for 6 weeks last July/August and had a cortisone shot in September. It is time for further investigation.
When I rang to make the appointment the woman asked two questions: "How much do you weigh?" and "Are you claustrophobic" .
Can't they just stick my legs in the tube?
