Wherefore art thou Alyce?


Where have I gone for last couple of months? Nowhere to be honest, really nowhere in particular. I haven't been able to go out much because of my bad ankle. This takes us back to last December when I sprained it. It was really early in the morning when I was heading out to catch a bus. Being the sleepy  and clumsy old me I took the wrong step on the stairs and landed on my ankle. Initially my ankle just felt like pins and needles but little did I know the next day was when the real pain kicked in -  I woke up to a swollen and sore ankle. Unfortunately my ankle hasn't recovered properly since then and it still hurts when I walk. I have been going to a Chinese bone doctor (aka a bone setter) recommended by my neighbour, a Chinese medicine doctor who specialises in osteology. In my opinion, Chinese medicine is a hit and miss, you could either get a really good doctor or a really bad one. Unfortunately the first doctor who had a look at my ankle wasn't very effective, he just applied herbal paste on my ankle and told me to go home to apply massage cream on my ankle. However after a few weeks of massage cream, my ankle was still aching and the doctor wasn't happy seeing me returning to the clinic. 

Recently I changed bone doctors and so far so good, my ankle is recovering and it's not hurting as much. The new doctor definitely seems to know which ligaments I've damaged and has put me on electrotherapy as well as applying mushy herbal paste (that has an inevitable smell) on my ankle. I have to go back to the clinic every 2-3 days, hopefully I will be up and running in no time!
