Poor little thing!! Thank goodness they can sort it out now and she will be running about again before the summer. She must be very brave :-)

Do you mean it wasn't a spur of bone at all, Dizz? If so, that's disgraceful.

That is dreadful DIZZI, it sounds like clinical negligence. I hope that it is sorted out soon for your little one.

my teenage grandson had pain in his foot for months
in the end the doctor sent him for an xray
and he had stood on a needle without knowing

after a minor op he was fine again

Poor girl!


hope she'll soon feel a lot better now they have found out what is wrong. xxxxx


It really is disgraceful that it has taken so long



Mind you, sometimes broken bones don't show up on x-rays ..................................

............... the winter sport over here is ice hockey, players are very highly paid, and nothing is lacking in their treatment. Similar to what happens to soccer players in the UK

One of our local star players returned from shoulder injury last week. In his first game he blocked a shot from going in the net. The puck hit his foot ................... puck is hard, and moving fast.

Next day, it was x-rayed.

Nothing wrong ........

...... so he played 3 more games, getting hit on the same foot by a puck in one of those games.

He complained that his foot was still uncomfortable after a game this past Tuesday .............. and the team doctors sent him for a CT scan as a precaution on Wednesday morning.


Foot broken, out of action for at least 4 weeks, possibly as long as 8 weeks.
