my swollen foot!


My foot got stepped on, this happened fourth of July. Afterwards, my toes turned black, and the top of my foot was red and very swollen. It is now almost two weeks later, and the top of my right foot has a swollen “marble sized ball” on it. My shoes do not fit. It is very painful, and although I want to see my doctor, I am almost wondering if the swelling will eventually go away? What do you think? Thank You for your time! Hurting waitress in Washington:H.

  1. Your foot is swollen because it was injured. I can’t tell you whether or not a bone is broken without an X ray. My feeling is that you should see a podiatrist and get this X rayed. To see is to know, not to see is to guess.
