So…I told you that I had that surgery on my big toe for the ingrown toenail. Well, the front of my foot, along with all the toes, are swollen. I guess its not not bad and its not the ankle which is a good thing so nothing there is going wrong. However, because of this toe issue…I have still yet to spend any time in the shoe. I did try the shoe, but only could try it for about 15mins before it got too much for my toe. Good thing is…its not as bad as it was yesterday night. Please pray that this swelling would go down so I can start working on the shoes and all…which I really want to start doing. I am just praying that this toe and its healing doesn’t keep me "a step back" for too long.
The surprising thing is, is that the toe doesn’t really hurt. Yet from how it looks…I should be. Its not infected…and I am soaking the foot in salts twice a day. Yet…I can see a lot of raw flesh where the bad nail was growing (only on right side of the big nail on the big toe)…so I can see why it was bothering me because it was digging into that raw flesh. I would think though that it would still hurt because the flesh is exposed. Anyway, so this is a little set back….but its better than having that nail back
Anyone else have this "anomaly", that is, not having pain after a removal of an ingrown toenail?
Thank you all and for your prayers…
