Ok so I trapped my foot in the front door - advice needed and docs aorund?
Two weeks ago managed to shut the front door (upvc type) on my foot as was leaving the house and there was something outside the door that my first foot out stood on and lost footing and managed to bring the door closed onto my foot.
This hurt a lot, scrapped lots of skin but no blood, all of the top of my foot. Question is how long should it take for this to stop hurting? Its not as bad as it was but its been two weeks now do I need to go to the docs can they actually do anything?
If it makes you feel any better, I had to take ds to A&E yesterday after he stood on a rusty garden rake. Not much harm done though, the owner was worried he'd need a tetnus jab which upset him far more then hurting his foot. I can't get my head around the injection schedule thingy.
Dh's rarely help. When I degloved my foot and was bleeding a lot with a big flap of skin hanging off he looked at it and said 'urgh, that looks horrid'
Yeah, you think?
Mind you I got my own back when he gashed his shin after a fall and I had to stitch it up. The silly bugger refused pointblank to go to A&E and said 'well can't you do it'. So I did. (I did give him a glass of shiraz and some paracetamol first) <mean>
Twas quite funny actually, he suddenly looked nervous and said 'this is going too hurt isn't it'.
LoveBeingAMummy I am assuming you are not diabetic btw, if you are any foot injury needs a medical review. Also keep an eye on the foot for any signs of swelling in the coming few weeks (just in case you have got something in it) or veins tracking (becoming more prominent) radiating from the injury up your leg.
