    My dh has been battling a foot injury for several months now. Its finally come down to a bone scan to see if there is a stress fracture or exploratory surgery. The bone scan is on Monday, and we are both anxious to have news one way or the other so we can fix the problem and move on. A stress fracture would probably mean a boot, and anything else would mean the surgery.

    We have a little guy arriving in 3 months and have so much to do, and unfortunately we don't have a lot of people who are able to help right now (including myself...I'm useless!). I'm worried for him about his foot and also that his stress level is getting higher. Please keep him in your thoughts!

    We got the bone scan results and there is no stress fracture. he needs to make an appt to see the doctor next week and discuss the options. Dr thinks its either a nerve, soft tissue, or a tendon. UGH

    Thanks everyone...he goes back to the doctor on Thursday. I'm hoping for surgery next week so I can be home with him (I go back to school on 9/1). We'll see what the doc says...

    The surgery is scheduled...doc is pretty sure he has a tear in a small tendon in his foot. So next Friday afternoon, he'll have the surgery and it will hopefully repair the problem. (fingers and toes crossed)

    Thanks, everyone, for your thoughts and prayers!

    Thank you, teacherSMK! Hopefully this one will go well so he can then schedule the sinus surgery he has to have now, too. I told him to get healed in all places before the baby comes! :lol:

    His surgery went pretty well...he had a torn tendon and a neuroma in his left foot. He's resting now and hopefully will refrain from getting on my nerves too much. Luckily he doesn't have crutches, although he needs to stay off of it as much as possible. We go back to the doctor on Monday morning :)
