Kate B Posted April 30, 2004 Report Share Posted April 30, 2004 As you all know I had a stress fracture in my 1st and 2nd metatarsals in the winter, and by the end of January, beginning of Frebruary they seemed to be on the mend. I started off going back to class really slowly, just doing floor work in contemporary and floor barre and staying away from ballet class altogehter. It was fine. But for the last 4 weeks I have been going to ballet, and by the end of last week I was getting the pain back, and I went to class on Monday and had to stop because it was hurting so much. And now, even just standing up hurts, even in my shoes. My PT is on holiday for the next 2 weeks. She is going to be annoyed with me. I'm beginning to think I tried to go back to dancing too fast. I'm not sure what to do. Should I stay away altogehter for a few months? Or just go back to floor work in contemporary? Do yoga and swimming for a while? I am so annoyed with myself. Sorry, this is turning into more like a rant than a request for advice. Thanks for listening. Quote Link to comment
