This afternoon I saw Dr. Geck’s PA, Dana. I had been concerned since the little accident on Saturday. She ordered X-rays with my brace on. She also examined my back with the brace off. I was much relieved when she told me that there was no damage to my spine! She told me that I should extend the time of wearing the brace until October 15. I didn’t want to hear that, but the good news far outweighed this disappointment.
Back in Kyle, I went to the heart doctor’s office to see whether I could stop taking the Metoprolol. I’m 99% sure that it is the cause of my foot and ankle swelling. The nurse agreed that my feet should not be swelling. She will talk with the doctor and call me to let me know the verdict.
