I badly bruised (ER's assessment, not mine) my foot 3 weeks ago and I still can't comfortably fit it into shoes. I mainly wear two pairs of shoes, my flip flops and my tennis/exercise shoes. I can't fully slip my sandals on and I have to really loosen my tennis shoes to put them on with out pain.
Shouldn't that problem have faded with the swelling?
Granted there's still a reddish tint covering the insole and roof. It looks like the skin just got over-heated, like you placed something in the microwave then put it on top of your skin, but it's not hot. There's a slight lump in the insole as well as the roof which I thought was from the bruising but the bruising is gone and yet the lump remains. The ER guys did an X-Ray and said nothing was broken so is this still from the bruising?
I'm confused, curious and annoyed so I thought I'd ask you lovely ladies. I appreciate your answers a lot. It saves me from bugging my family. :o)
