When I last saw Matt Williamson (physio) 6 weeks ago he recommended that I contact my doctor and request an MRI scan and we both agreed that not replacing my insoles was a mistake! So when I saw my doctor he said he would request an appointment to replace them.
On Monday I had my appointment with an Orthotist at the Vale of Leven Hospital in Alexandria. She was really helpful and keen to find out the extent of the damage in my ankle and how to sort it out.
So I had an x-ray straight away. They took images from 4 different angles as I was weight bearing. I’m also going to get an MRI scan, hopefully in the next 4-6 weeks. I have a followup appointment on Monday 4th December when the consultant will discuss the results.
I’m also on the waiting list to see a specialist about getting insoles. On average it takes 12 weeks to get an appointment. I’ve been on the waiting list for 6 weeks so hopefully it won’t be too much longer.
I’ve decided to wait until I’ve had the scan and have new insoles before starting to run again. I figure that I’ve waited this long I might as well hang on a bit longer. There is some pain in my ankle so I don’t think it’s going to do much good trying to run at the moment.
That means that I definitely won’t be running the Glen Ogle 33. I was hoping I might be able to make it but it’s not to be.
