Permanent Injury

Posted by CJ. Mitchell on 12/04/98 at 00:00 (002506)

Went to see another doctor that I had consulted before my foot was put in cast. The day after cast came off, he said maybe that this was going to be at least a year or more, and possibly a permanent injury to my foot.
The more I try to get it to heal, the more, it hurts. I have no help at home, and am suppose to be off my foot completely.
Am wearing a bandage that is removable (after 6 weeks in a cast, I needed a good hot bath) and wearing ankle brace.
Now my foot is swelling alot and hurts worse. Even at night when it is off, I still don't get any rest.
I have tried about everything I can think of from foot rubs and baths, pillows and beyond.
I need some moral support. Have been writing to other delphi board, and wish to say thank you to all that have written to me from there.

Ice is the only thing that really helps. My problem is with my achilles heel so I wrap it in cold compresses whenever I am off my feet. Anytime I'm on my feet I swell and the ice does work, even tho the pain doen't ever go completely away. Good Luck. Bea
