I woke up Monday morning with a painful dark spot on the ball of my foot. My husband thought it might be a spider bite, because it came up so fast. This would be potentially, very bad. I started a thread on the boards – Spider Bite. There was enough concern I went to Urgent Care, Monday morning to have it looked at.
They told me I stepped on something and sent me home, even though I told them it was extremely painful. Giving up, I went home.
I posted to the boards on that thread and many people weighed in about this. It’s a corn. It’s a wart. I decided it was a tumor…because it just looked like something that ought to be dug out. I made an appointment with a podiatrist and I saw him today.
I still don’t know what is wrong. My foot is broken! However we don’t know if it is an old break or new. I am actually someone who could break my foot and keep going…I have no doubt about that.
He did cut into my foot. He thought it might be thrombosis, which he said is very painful. He said he did get some blood out…but really doesn’t know what is going on with my foot.
Right now it’s numb from the surgery. I am going back in a week, though I am not sure why. I can’t really tolerate narcotic drugs very well. But I just want to tell you, this is what it’s like for us Saturn Neptune types. We can’t get a diagnosis for shit!
If I broke it recently (my guess), I probably did it by stepping on one of the dog’s cigar-shaped rawhide rolls. Argh.
