Foot Saga Continues

Later this morning I go back for an already scheduled appointment regarding the left foot. This is the same foot that I dropped one of Sandi's oxygen cylinders on a couple of weeks ago causing pain, swelling, bruising, etc. This is the left foot which has had burning and pain in it for going on four years plus now as part of the pain in the left leg and hip, etc.  This is also the leg that will buckle on me and cause me to fall and all the rest of it.

So, I knew going in this could take awhile. But, this is starting to worry me quite a bit. It is only slightly better. Up until Monday or so if anything it was worse. The bruising and swelling finally seem to have gone away for the most part, but the new pain is still in there pretty good. Overall the pain level is pretty close to what it was when it happened and that worries me.

Anyway, we shall see what the doc says. I expect another two weeks in the surgical shoe at least. That certainly won't help my mobility issues at all.

UPDATE---Back home and the doc says it is healing. He manipulated my foot a bit and prodded it and while it hurt it was not to the level it was a couple of weeks ago. I'm a slow healer and I know it. At least two more weeks with the shoe as I am to keep doing what I have been doing.

Total suckage. Except for the fancy footwear.

Not a fan of the footwear.
