Doctor doctor, can't you see I'm burning

Today I went to get my foot check out by a pro. Well, by a Dr. away.
And here's how it went:
She gave me the option of getting a shot in my foot (something Fran has told me hurt more than giving birth) or going on anti-inflammarories. Guess what I picked? I've actually had a shot in my wrist before so I know how much that hurts. Pills I can handle.
So I've got some drugz for a few days, more PT and no running for a few more days. I haven't run since Sat. This is a record for the year! She thinks this should clear it up.
She didn't say OH MY GOD THERE IS NO WAY YOU CAN RUN THE MARATHON! She actually thinks it would be fine. I'm still on the fence, we'll see how the next few days go.
As it is, I was planning on not running if I was in Africa so this is pretty close to that.

Yay, so glad you didn't get a "don't marathon" from the doc. And excellent that you'd be in Africa not running now anyway. Tis all good, girlie.

I hope the pills do the trick! You still have a bit of time before the race, so I hope that the rest and the drugs work for you!

Oh, would be no contest for me too on the shot versus pills. Glad that all things considered, the timing of this is not worst case scenario.

I'm so glad you got the thumbs-up from the doc regarding NYM. Are the pills doing the trick? No pain on Wednesday... no pain... no pain. There. I waved a virtual dead chicken, so you should be good to go.
