Before I forget, I just wanted to make a note that it was Dr. Noreen Oswell who helped me when I had the deep puncture wood in my foot–she’s awesome!
After she took the wood out of my toe, she said couldn’t believe how normal my toe looked “I honestly didn’t think there was anything in there”, but then when she cut into it she found a 1/2 inch deep piece of wood, angled straight towards my bone.
(A normal person would have had a red and inflamed toe–mine just had a small puncture wound, as if it had been poked but that was it.)
Dr. Oswell was *awesome* to keep investigating just based on my complaints of being in pain–too many doctors don’t investigate any further because I always look so normal!
(Pictures of my toe both *with* the splinter in my toe and the splinter itself I posted on June 17th.)
