Love it when I pay a doctor for stupid advice. $91 (after my 30% discount)-first he tells me he thinks there's a deep bone bruise that's worse then the fracture. He wants to do an MRI to get a better look. I told him I didn't have insurance. Oh.
Well, he suggested I could wear a boot ($400 from him or $35 on Amazon) but I didn't have to. Or I could put this toe thing in my shoe. I finally stopped him and asked, "What happens if I do nothing? Oh, it should heal fine.
He did tell me no treadmill and wear stiff shoes. He said don't soak it as it will swell more(my husband brought that up-he thinks it fixes everything) and use ice.
Thanks. I was doing that before I spent $91. Apparently, the doctors office got their info incorrect (my doctor was gone) when they told me it wasn't healing right-it's healing slowly.
