So I shall do the usual trick and talk about my day for a little bit and then go into some news. So my days are not getting any easier, I am still having to make the choice between severe pain from an early point in the day or not getting that much work done (I mainly opt for the getting the work done side and only struggle on the days where it is bad from the time I wake up) and to be honest sometimes I can not even get as much work done as I would like and still be in quite a considerable amount of pain.
Today I again experienced the numbness in the bottom of my left foot, this is something that I think Becky has mentioned having but something that I only experienced for the first time last week. Whether this is further progression of the disease or just some oddity I do not know but I have certainly had it twice in the last week and never before that and my foot has been the most painful it has even been in the last 3 weeks.
I was also having pain in my right foot again today and this reached its most painful level to date. I am still unsure as to whether this is Ledderhose or perhaps just something like plantar fasciitis caused by the increased strain it is under due to the problems with the other foot. I do now think that I can feel some lumps in my right arch but I am not certain and what I think it the main one or at least seems to be associated with pain is in a slightly different location to the left foot lump and is closer to my heel.
|Rough location and guestimation of size of the lumps.|
Xiapex in the North East of England:
It was announced on Monday that there was a reversal on the initial decision on Xiapex (to reject it) and they are now going to put it forward as an option for Dupuytren's in the North East. This sounds good right?
