In 24 hours a lot can change.
Do you sense the complaints coming?
24 hours ago I was eating a GREAT Sunday dinner with my family.
24 hours ago we took a GREAT walk in GORGEOUS weather.
24 hours I didn't have a care in the world!
Ok so obviously that is NOT true. But nonetheless,
24 hours ago my big toe was still in tact.
24 hours later, it is not.
So here is the story, it's a good one.
Last night about 9 PM I noticed a little swelling and redness around the nail bed. It was quite painful, but it was not like a normal ingrown toe nail. Usually it hurts near the top. So I consulted my family and no one could figure it out. It was decided I would soak it with epsom salt. So I did and then I went to bed.
Fast forward to 2 AM. I wake up in SEARING pain. It was throbbing!!!!! So I again soaked it in epsom salt, took some tylonel, and continued to be in pain until 5 AM when I fell back into a pain induced slumber.
So this morning I made an appointment with the podiatrist.
I went in and he took off part of the nail bed.
And it HURTS! I am in PAIN! The actual procedure didn't hurt, but the after recovery?
Okay so the story wasn't that interesting.
But I am in PAIN.
It HURTS! IT HURTS!
And I'm sorry to complain so much, but...
Feel sorry for me...
**Edited to add**
I am sorry I am such a big baby. The doctor lied. He said it "wouldn't hurt much. You'll just need a tylenol or two." This thing throbs like a mofo! That's right, I said MOFO.
On another note the problem was:
On my big toe on my left foot along the bottom right hand corner of the nail bed, it was swollen and inflamed because of a nasty ingrown toenail. It is pretty uncommon for them to be so low in the toe, but it happens from time to time. The podiatrist took the toenail out (on one side) and killed it so it would not grow back!! Poor Toe!
