A painful entry


It has been a pitiful weekend for me last weekend. I finally was dragged by hubby to see my family doctor last Friday night after my foot still swollen and red. It was infected and inflamed, I think my foot size increased by 1 size! LOL!

Since Friday night, I have been visiting my family doctor to put some dressings on my foot and knee. It was a painful trip. A touch of the liquid on the wounds almost take my breaths away! As usual I got scolded by my doctor and nurses for not resorting for an early treatment.

The doctor decided to cut off the yellowish surface on my foot yesterday. Those were dead skin with dirts and bacteria. The less-than-1-minute “minor operation” almost killed me as I was panting with heavy sighing and cold sweats running down my face although the consultation room was cold like freezer! Doctor did not give any painkiller injection as my foot was swelling pretty badly yesterday! I still can feel the cutting of the skin with scissor right now! Urg!! Now the foot would be in bandage for a week till new skin cover up the fresh red wound! I don’t want to go through that again! Even after Caesarian operation few years back, I were able to endure the pain! How come I couldn’t handle this little pain well, hubby asked. Felt like slapping him that time, but luckily for him, I was unable to move and he was ushered out from the room with little gal in his arm! Just fortunate I did not kick the doctor and nurse as well! LOL!

My leg should be recovering by this week! Right now I don’t want to think of the scar it could make on my foot after it heals! Sigh! We did not go to the beach last weekend since my leg cannot be in touch with water and rather inconvenient for me to walk around with bandages on my foot and knee. I was resting almost the whole 2 days in the bed. Hopefully I would be able to recover in time this weekend for the nice beach outing that hubby promised me!
