Look Before You Kick

Clumsy me kicked on the leg of the bed…OUCCHHHHH…ADDOIIIII…….NIAMAHHH....%$@#*&^%.....and I instantly fell forward onto the bed, hands reaching out for the injured foot. OMG....my foot looked something like this…..

The fourth toe bent something close to 70 degrees towards the little toe. Seimou!…It looked so weird and on impulse, I gave it a push and I heard a soft ‘SNAP’ and the toe settled back into position. Ahh…looks as good as before. A cold compress and some Voltaren gel and then to roll it up in grib-bandage should do the trick.


Woke up this morning and I realised the foot is unable to bear my weight and there is swelling at the base of the toes. Went to the doctor's and had imaging done…oh…oh….there is a phalange fracture. Doctor’s prescription – a buddy splint and some oral medication to relieve pain and swelling and to rest the foot.


Lesson learned - 'Look Before You Kick.' And this has to happen when I am going off for a break in 11 days time. WAAAAAAAaaaaaa……….

Hi Pisang goreng,

Clumsy and careless = broken toe.

I think must wear safety shoes liao hor? hahahahah.....
Hi Savante,

Oh ya, it hurt bad. I was yelping away. But surprisingly, there were no tears. :P

And thanks for your compliments. :)
Hi Melbie,

It sure was painful then but now getting better already....now can walk 'senget-senget' lidat lar. ^0^

I pray too that it heals fast for me to enjoy my holidays. :)

You have a nice day, Melbie.
aikes. pain pain lor, now how? better or not? jaga diri ya.... and selamat berholiday.
Hi Oscar's Mummy,

Now I can walk senget-senget and not painful unless I salah pijak. The foot still cannot tahan my feipoh weight yet. Doctor said should be OK by next week but have to go slow-slow...no jumping like a monyet yet. ^0^

Thanks for your kind wishes and you have a great day too.

Hope by now it is ok liaw.
  At 3:06 PM Blogger Pi Bani said:
Aiyah, can imagine the pain even if there was no fracture whatsoever! Hopefully you'll get well enough before the holidays. Tapi nanti time holiday kalau kaki sudah baik pun you still walk senget-sengat lah... then can still boss people around... hehehe...
get well soon!

Hope you recover soon and have a great break ahead of you
Hi Angeleyes,

It was painful but now healing well. Lucky thing past 2 days I had to attend full-day classes, so no need to walk too much. Now using slippers and I hope to be able to put on my walking shoes next week. :)
Hi Nightwing,

Still in bandage and healing well. I can walk senget-senget but have to be very careful lest someone stepped on it.

You have a nice day. :)
Hi Pi Bani,

It sure was sakiiitttsss! But I was surprised also...no tears wor? hahhahaaa....

The good doctor said it should be OK by next week but reminded me not to over-exert it...definitely no break-dancing allowed. :P And bossing people around is 'encouraged' if it aids healing. KAKAKAKAKA......
Hi Daniel,

Thanks so much. **hugssss...**
Hi Zeroimpact,

Thank you so much. This holiday is gonna be a blast.

You have a great day. :)

BTW, how's the weather over your side? Must be beautiful spring time now. Read in the local dailies that on 4th April every year there is this Sumo Festival or something. hmmm...must make plans to visit Japan one of these days.

You have a nice day. :)

Hi Suituapui,

Definitely no high-heels for the next few months. Tua liao...feet cannot take the stress.

Thanks so much for your kind words. :)
Hi William,
