Hello everyone I went to the hospital to have my toe looked at. Xrays was taken and it appeared not to be broken but a radiologist will have to look at it.Dr stated that the nail might have to be removed because of the blood that has collected under the nail. they wants to wait a few days until some of the pain and swelling goes down before doing anything to it. Thanks all for your concern will keep you posted.

Glad it's not broken, though I bet it feels like it anyway. I had a nail removed and the relief was great. Even though the pain hung around for a few days, the knowing that the pain of before was gone was encouraging. Do keep a good eye on it. Look for redness and swelling and if you are given antibiotics make sure you are taking them. So now do we call you Hop A Long Ruthie?

That's good news.

Take care of yourself, remember as a diabetic, any injury is an emergency until the doctor says that it isn't.
