Life and Leg Problems

It's the Thanksgiving weekend here in Canada this weekend, but I'm not feeling that I have a lot to be thankful for.

As most folks have noticed, I've not been posting all that much this past week or so. While the medical procedure that I underwent a week ago tomorrow went well, and I've been recovering from that relatively nicely, I've been down with relative malaise, chest pain, a cough, headache, and a few other symptoms during the week.

However, the real problem has been my left leg. While I've still got the pain and swelling in my left leg and ankle respectively, I've got problems with the knee now, as well as the thigh. I've had a swollen thigh muscle, I've had the feeling like there's water dripping down my knee or pooling around the ankle, and a few other symptoms. And there's a sharp pain on the top of my left big toe.

While I stayed off my feet for a couple of days after the medical procedure, walking has become an extremely painful chore on my left leg, and I feel a lot less pain keeping the leg elevated and the knee relatively straight. (Hence why I've not been on-line too much this past week.) The ankle pain has gotten worse as well. After having read some stuff on the internet about things (which one should never do, of course), I've come to conclude that it's been brought on due to the diabetes.

But overall, I'm just feeling miserable and sorry for myself.

That's all I've got for the moment.
