I`ve been to podiatry today, to have my misbehaved toenails trimmed.
It has been decided that I should have the right big toenail removed…I know…ouch!
The plan was that today we would fix a date for the surgery.
But due to all the pain I am still having following my suprapubic catheter operation, I dont feel up to another invasive procedure just yet.
I explained to the podiatrist and she agreed it
s best to wait. i described the pain to her.......stabbing and very painful. I told her that the hospital who did the op, my GP and district nurses cant say what`s causing the pain.
She said when she sees diabetic patients, they often complain of the same kind of pain…and that is caused by nerve damage!
So that`s what must be causing my pain…nerve damage…which is what has caused my condition from the start! Revelation!
I`ll be seeing my new neuro on 16th September. I feel relieved with this new possible answer to my sore tum! Hopefully she can prescribe something for that and my heel pain.
