Does your doctor have another covering his practice. Most due. Give him a call to ease your mind. Rest. elevation and stay off the foot as much as you can until you get your doc on the phone or someone else from his practice.

My feet both turn purple and I have not had surgery. No one can seem to tell me about the purple or losing circulation. It seems to happen when I am on my feet more.
