My long-awaited family trip over Christmas to Rome begins in 2 weeks...but yesterday, I tripped and fractured my 5th metatarsel - the bone that connects your toes to your ankel I have a stiff boot that I have to wear for 8 weeks and am currently in a lot of pain when I walk. Hopefully that will dissapate.
For those of you who have been to Rome - am I going to be able to cope? I can't bend my leg so stairs are difficult and this boot is a real pain. I am an avid walker and in good shape...but can't walk as much now to keep the swelling down. The doctor had dire warnings of blood clots thrown during the flight due to fracture...(i'll take aspirin as a precaution) and wasn't encouraging of us continuing in our plans.
There is NO WAY I am going to disappoint my family (2 teenagers and husband) and not go...but I am a little worried...
