I now have a sausage for a right leg. My thigh is thick and swollen, and the side is red. It actually looks sunburned, which is weird. I've been icing it religiously, trying (more or less) to stay off of it and take care of it. (I went skating saturday, but took it easy and didn't push it. I went to Mexican Village saturday night but didn't dance. I walked downtown for dinner on sunday, but it was a short one and I walked very slowly. And I iced it after each of these activities.)
Now I'm at work, and elevating it. My jeans feel weird, because they're significantly tighter on one leg than they are on the other! Somebody suggested I need a good masseuse, but in fact it can't stand to be touched right now (sorry thistimearound!).
I know it's getting better, but it looks like it's going to take awhile. How frustrating.
