I am writing this to request your thoughts & prayers.
A few weeks ago I went to the nail solan to get my normal (monthly) pedicure.
Well when the lady doing my nail took off my polish my toenail was straight blue and green. Thinking it was a major infecion, I rushed to the ER.
I was told that it was only a bad bruise and not to worry. It was a little sore but due to my neuropathy, I barely felt it and had no clue how I'd received it.
So I've kept the nail polish off (and plan to only paint my tips from now on so this sort of thing doesn't happen again ) and have been checking it religiously.
I noticed that instead of getting better in the past 3-4 weeks it's actually turned darker and really began to hurt over the past few days.
Friday while picking up my prescriptions, I stopped by my doctors office to take a Glace at it… she wasn't available but a nurse looked at it and told me that a 'procedure ' doctor would need to see me…
Turns out it had become badly infected due to my uncontrolled bg's… Needless to say, my nail had to be removed (painful) which included 6 shots to numb the toe (extremely painful )… where the heck was my neuropathy then? LOL.
The doctor advised me to really take care of it so it doesn't spread to my foot, which I am… I really DON'T want that to happen. .. but was hoping my online friends and family would keep me in their thoughts and if you pray keep me in those too.
I sure would appreciate it.
BTW- I figured out how I got the bruise… about 5 weeks ago I was doing my normal 60 minute daily workout routine in pool and accidentally hit the pool wall with my toe… it didn't really hurt too bad due to the neuropathy, so I had no clue that's that is what had caused it!… actually kinda funny when you think about it… maybe not but sometimes you gotta laugh or you'll cry. =)
