Very Large Jagged Heel Spur

I took ya'lls (is that a word?) advise and went to the doctor this morning about my foot.

Sexy, huh? (but why is my second toe so long?!?)

 They took x-rays and told me that I have a  "very large, jagged" bone spur in my heel. 

OUCH! (this is not my real foot)

So my doctor prescribed me an anti-inflammatory that should (hopefully) help with the pain. If that doesn't work to take the pain away, I will have to have surgery to remove the spur. 

The doctor said I could resume normal activity as long as I wasn't in pain. He also said it will help when I lose weight because not as much pressure will be on my heel (and he was very impressed with the weight I have already lost since my last visit - YAH). 

I'm going to switch to activity that doesn't put as much pressure on my feet - like biking, swimming, and water aerobics (thanks for the suggestions!). 

Any more ideas for low impact activity?


  1. low impact activity.... does it have to involve some sort of exercise?


  2. I know a "whole bunch of boys" you could babysit! Although... that might not be considered 'low' impact. :)

  3. HA! yes it has to involve exercise and no I would not like to babysit! LOL!
