Hey guys i havent been on here for a bit i been sick around a month ago my left foot was so swollen that i had to go and have it check out at the emergency room on my frist visit the dr figure it was celulttis since i had it on the same foot back in jan 12, he gave me antiboitics and pain medicine and sent me home he advise if the swelling didnt go down to come back in, i ended up going back 3 days later cause my foot was so swollen my shoes didnt fit, the er dr took xrays of my foot snd found that my left foot was dislocted and fracture and i needed surgery to have it fix. well 12 days later i had the surgery they put 9 screws in my foot and put a cast on it sent me home. while i was home i ended up breaking the foot again and now i sit back at the hospital waiiting my second surgery but this time the dr warn me that its going o be really hard to fix cause the bone was so bad he dont know if he can do it a second time he said if he cant fix it he will have no choice but to amputate the leg. so here i stand waiting till fri or mn for my surgery praying everything will go well.

How did you break it the first time, and then how did you break it again while resting after surgery?

i was doing my regular 1/2 walk trying to stay in shape ans since i have nueropathy i dont have much feeling on my feet so i didnt hurt much the only reason i went to the er was becasue it was so swollen i could not put my shoes on, the second it broke was when they send me home the dr had told me that the bone was so fragile that he was bearly able to put the screws in it but they sent me home with just a walker and i guess while i was walking to the bathroom and kitchen to get my meds it broke again and i never felt it. im on day # 6 at the hospital with my foot elevated and with a limfomia wrap waiting for the swelling to go down the dr saids maybe fri or mon for my surfery. wish me luck guys. thanks
