All is well

Alhamdulillah, after 2 months of non weight bearing, making myself feeling slightly crazy not going to class, I am finally a-OK! Thumbs up! My specialist has given me the green light to walk again!


My 58th day post op. Dr yoga my ortho specialist said I am all good. I can start wearing my normal shoes.
“Can I start running doc?”
“Practice walking full weight bearing first…”

with kak @madiah_j who dropped by the hospital to meet me on the day i had an appointment with Dr Yoga. Kak Madiah was my school buddy when I was first posted teaching at a school in Pontian… Thank you dear kak for the honey from #foreverliving, mint plant and chocolates from langkawi..semoga murah rezeki hari jumaat!


Waiting for my turn from 1130 to 2pm at Colombia Asia Hospital. This was my last doctor’s visit! Yahoo!!

Traumatic fractures

Traumatic fractures are caused by a direct blow or impact, such as seriously stubbing your toe. Traumatic fractures can be displaced or nondisplaced. If the fracture is displaced, the bone is broken in such a way that it has changed in position (malpositioned).

Signs and symptoms of a traumatic fracture include:

  • You may hear a sound at the time of the break.
  • Pinpoint pain (pain at the place of impact) at the time the fracture occurs and perhaps for a few hours later, but often the pain goes away after several hours.
  • Crooked or abnormal appearance of the toe.
  • Bruising and swelling the next day.

What I am experiencing is traumatic fracture!


Sutures Removal

The sutures were removed after 30 days and steri-strips (special Band-Aids) were applied. My foot was still wet in the shower but again, I just couldn’t help it.

Metatarsal Post-Op

What I did at home as post op care:

Elevate my foot with pillows. Get some foot massage.

Take pain medication as directed.

Make follow up appointment with Dr Yoga almost every week.  At these visits, x-rays were taken, a new sterile dressing was re-applied.



Do dressing on the wound- I always  got my dressings wet while bathing or taking wudhu…well what to do?


“Electrical” pains and swelling is normal according to my specialist. So bear with it.

And finally, to kill boredom, do online shopping!

Post Operative Care

At home, I spent most of my time on the wheelchair and used the crutches on off whenever I needed them.

My feet swelled today, I dont know why. Could be post op effect . My toes were slightly numb. Took off the bandage for a while then put it back on before bed.



Post Op


Alhamdulillah, thank you to many of my friends for all their well wishes. The operating procedure went smoothly. I was pushed to the operating theatre around 245pm. They kept taking blood and ecg tests fearing I might have heart issues considering the pain on my chest I had this morning.
Dr. Sumitra, the hospital’s anesthesiologist gave 3 shots of anaesthesia on my spine soon after which I lost track of what was happening. I wasn’t aware of the procedure done on my feet by Dr Yoga, my ortho specialist until it was over. Around 5pm I realized that everyone was cleaning things up. They pushed me to the side, let me rest for another 30 minutes and more tests were done on me as post ops procedure. I was ushered to my room and was unconscious for most of the time until 8pm.


Human Markings

~This is where the surgery was going to be done at 3pm on 4th Jan~ bone fractured and dislocated ~
waiting for a physician to make his visit to check on my well-being after I complained about my blackout this morning and an ecg was done.

Fractured Metatarsal of Last Toe

Yup. That’s it. After multiple scans of my foot, Dr Yoga asked if I wanted a foot cast (which would recover in 6 months) or a surgery (which of course I presumed would heal faster).

I was immediately warded and early at dawn the hospital took three small bottles of blood. As soon as the procedure was done I had a terrible blackout, my heart was pounding profusely, I felt pain on my chest…started vomitting and passing stool. Could be food poisoning last night? Or not enough sleep as the patient next to me was snoring even up to now while I am typing this message. I know I dont have heart problem…My sugar reading was 5.5. The nurse just came over to take another bottle of blood as “darah kakak sudah beku”, and I said no fearing I might get another blackout.

An incidental disclosure

While I was walking down the stairs at C13, I tripped and fell. That was 2nd Jan. The blow was really hard that my foot swelled in just seconds.

Husband said not to worry, just a slight impact from the fall. The problem was that I had difficulty walking. I was given a shot for the pain, some medication and 3 days mc. I was also asked to do an XRAY at PKU UTM. I rested at home and used ICE to treat the swollen foot. True enough after an xray done, I had some kind of broken bones and was referred to a specialist.

Fishing again

It is that time of the year when your other half decided to go on a fishing trip. Instead of fish, there were loads of squids he took home with him. Here are some of his catch.
