Foot & Ankle Problems Board Index


I actually got a look at my foot in the shower today after it had been down for a little bit and I know why my heel hurts--it is really, really badly bruised. When the rest of my foot turns blueish my foot turns black. I don't know if this is related to surgery, being in casts for 10 weeks, a couple of stage I pressure sores I had back there or even this huge ball of dead skin that was stuck to my heel and poking me for the last 2 weeks in the cast but it is very bruised and so it makes perfect sense that it doesn't like weight on it. Having said that it is getting more and more easy to put the weight on it and I'm walking around my 600 sq ft home without crutches at all once the morning stiffness is gone. It's not pretty yet and I'll need one or both crutches outside the house for another week or two but I am definitely walking. yay!
