Went to the Podiatrist today.......

I've been fighting an infected toes for over a week. Called his office last Wednesday & got a call in to my druggist for Keflex. Taking it 4 times a day & appt today.

First thing he says, "you need to be in the hospital" I told him I can't I need to be out of my condo by the 9th, and I'll do anything he says to do. No argument from him. He took x-rays, a culture, wrapped the toe & put me in a boot, and an appt. next Monday. If I have a fever or chills I am to go to the ER.

Until the culture comes back, his opinion is that it's cellulitis.

2. Yikes.

Yikes. My brother had that. The doctor sent him to the ER and had an IV waiting. Plugged him in the minute he walked in the door.

He only had to spend one night.

Hope you feel better!!

3. Wow, I feel cheated

I thought my swollen leg was the result of heart failure, but the cardiologist took one look at it and my foot, and said it was cellulitis. Prescribed some antibiotics, and I was on my way. My GP failed to diagnose it as cellulitis and I was in misery. I didn't realize it was a dangerous condition.
