Bruised toes and ankle…major pain since

(2 discussions)

I had my DPM do an ankle block on friday, he also did a steroid injection into the joint of the big toe (dont know what its called). He put a unna boot on my foot and told me to remove it the following afternoon. My foot swelled big time with this and everywhere the meds. went in my foot are now badly brusied to the point I can’t put any pressure on my right foot at all much less touch it. I’ve iced it and it helps…but as soon as the ice is off I’m back to square one again. Is there anything that can be done to help? Any recommendations will be gladly accepted. Thanx for your time and help in advance. KareBear

    I also have a small to mid sized bump on the outside of my foot along the arch area but closer to the hell area (only hurts if I touch or put pressure on it)…is this something I should worry about? What could it be? The DPM is also thinking to immobilize the foot on the 8th just to see if it helps any. Again thanx for any advice.

    I think that you had a steroid reaction. It should pass. Until you are comfortable putting weight on the area, you might consider using crutches.
