I got to the diagnostic center last weekend and just got a clean result from the xrays.
Three views reveal anatomic alignment and no acute skeletal abnormality.
That means either it’s not a stress fracture or it’s so minor that a real man wouldn’t even notice…er, I mean a regular xray won’t show it. Since the pain is way down, I’m going to pass on the higher-radiation bonescan that might show a really teeny fracture.
While the xray didn’t show a fracture…
There are mild degenerative changes in the first interphalangeal joint.
…apparently I have the beginnings of arthritis in my big toe. Joy.
