I crushed my big toe joint 3 years ago and since then I’ve had 3 surgeries to fix it. In October I had the joint replaced and it was good till 4 weeks ago!
My toe started with pain and swelling (I barely hit it on my couch cushion and throught it was from that and would go away) but it got worse. I went in at a week after the start and the surgeon just gave steroids and pain meds. It didn’t get better and actually got worse. The color of my foot is/was a different color and it ranges from red, blueish and purplish and the pain is deep aching. I finally made the surgeon see me on Wednesday and he right away goes “that’s not right. We need to get a CT scan to look at the bone marrow”
I had the CT scan on Thursday and he was in surgery today and I was told I would hear from him, but as usual, no call.
I honestly can barely wear flip flops and even with those on it feels awful. Has this happened to anyone and it turned out to be a bone infection? It’s been almost 5 weeks so I know it’s not as pressing for him as it is for me since it’s ruinjng my life.
Anyone have any information ?
