It turns out that I’ve been walking around on a broken foot for 3 months. I wish I would have gone with my gut and asked to see a foot and ankle specialist earlier. Apparently the bone I broke in 3 places often doesn’t heal and I might need surgery. For now I’m rocking a boot and an electric blue pedicure. I’m happy that my foot will finally have a chance to heal.
My doctor said the bruising on the bottom of my foot after rolling my ankle was an indication that there was a bad break. Everybody including my doctor just kept saying sprains take forever to heal. In my case the pain increased over time. I hate to go to a doctor and have them tell me it’s all in my head. I waited. I waited too long. Don’t be like me.
