A Quick Follow-Up on the Numb Toes

I spoke with the physician's assistant who saw me yesterday (I never actually saw a doctor at either urgent care or the orthopedist's office) and it looks like I just had my boot on too tight and had some inflammation issues. The toes have been fine all day today--no real numbness or tingling--and I have had no sharp pains or tightness which might indicate a blood clot. I am having pain in my other leg, but that seems to be from muscle fatigue from the right leg having to carry all the weight. In any case, I am being vigilant and pretty much staying off the leg...

Thanks for all the Facebook and Blogger concern and wishes everyone!

I'm assuming you're on crutches? (asks your friendly neighborhood physical therapist).

Pardon me for being a grumpy old bear about it, but numbness and tingling can be a sign of a compartment syndrome, which could lead to permanent disabilities. I'm glad it wasn't.

But they did respond quickly to your call, didn't they?

Holy hell, lady! The minute my back is turned, see what you get up to? Wow. So, sit your butt down and write while this thing gets better...the glass will still be there. You don't have to move a single toe while writing. Hmmm. Maybe you should fly back to Portland for a stay here...
