Surely this isn't normal?

Posted , 5 users are following.

So since November 2014 I've had 3 toes / partial toe amputations. One of my toes has recently turned a funny way - I've been too the doctors serval times and they said not to worry well the skin has broken down on the toe, it's red (dorsally upwards) and I have swollen lymph nodes. I'm on a strong dose of antibiotics and it just seems to be doing nothing. I've had sepsis from this before so am pretty worried..

    Hi jessie16115, you poor thing that sounds terrible, go back to your doctors tell them how you feel. Write it down and give it to them to read in case you get upset. You must be in so much pain. X

    Don't battle on get an appointment and see the doctor, even an emergency appointment I agree this does not seem normal and as you say you don't want to suffer from sepsis again. Good luck x
