I finally made it to the podiatrist; I have not one, but two torn ligaments in my ankle. It’s a drag, but I’m happy that I can start getting it treated properly with physical therapy. I also got a new ankle brace – this one has a hinge so that I’m secure for lateral movement but my range of motion for flexing is not limited (i.e. I can bend my ankles more, and by extension my knees). It felt good at fencing last night; we’ll see how things turn out.
