here I am still laid up in the hospital,they havn't sent me home yet because they have to wait untill they match my blood thinner(I.V.) and my blood thinner (pills) once they are matched the same then I go home for 6-8 weeks, after this period then they will know how much toe/foot they need to take off.oh well at least the food is good Thumbs Up

The moral of this story is, not for all the over 50's but ALL MEN, whenever you find any symptom, no matter how insignificant, get yourself off to doctor, hospital, medical room (whatever you call it wherever you are) and get it checked out.........

MEN are crap at this....so take heed.

Take care everyone.

well it's bee over 2 weeks now and there still not ready to cut off the toe,i'm going home to wait it out there.they are trying to match my blood thinner with pills but they havn't been able to get it the same,so today they started me on a needle instead of IV. If the pills don't end up working then I will have to inject myself with this needle everyday.lucky I work for an understanding company, so I let them knoe were still looking at 6-8 weeks before I return to work, but my sick pay still has not been approved yet. when I get home I will try and post a couple of pic's of my toe,so you can see just how bad it really is. well have a good everyone. Thumbs Up

well i've been home for 3 day's now, I have a nurse that comes and cleans my toe and put's new dressing on it, and she checks my staples in my abdomen to make sure there is no infection . they also started a new treatment where I have to travel to toronto (about 8 miles) to get an injection in my belly every morning. (my son drives me). this will last 10-14 days until they have my blood at a certain level then I switch over to a pill. right now I take 5 pills ( 2 are narcotics) 3 times a day, and their going to add 1 more . as far as i can see it looks like the toe has actually stopped dieing, so hopefully the operation to remove it will be in a couple of weeks. Thumbs Up

So my blood work has been nice to me for the last 2 day's so I don't have to make the trip to the hospital for my needle. i get 2 days off, just take the pills and back on wednesday to be tested again. the problem with these blood thinners is you bleed very easy, when I scratched my leg it blead for 20 min. very light but still, gotta watch out for a good cut, they can last a long time.

Going to meet my new doc today, I went to meet a new one on wed, but he said he is not at the clinic enough to handle my case, and the hospital wants me to have a doc close to home to avoid all the traveling.my sister works with a lot of docs so she found me this one, 5 min from my home, this doc doesn't usually come in to his clinic on fridays, but he's coming in just to meet me and evaluate my case.so thats a ++ for him because doctors ,now adays docs don't go out of the way for patients any more like they used too. I bet this guy would even make a house call. Big Smile and I hope he can take these damn staples out of my abdomen,some of them are starting to hurt. on the brighter side a lot of the toe is still coming back to life, so it looks like i will only loose from the knuckle up includeing the nail.but the op is still not for another few weeks and anything can happen between now and then. thanks for reading and good luck to you all. Thumbs Up

G'day mate

I do hope things are going well for you today.
Truly I hope things get much better for you very soon.
Life really has a way at times to make us wonder why.
Did they ever tell you what caused the problem in the first place?
best wishes
be cool

Yea ronin, the main cause was smoking. they finally took my staples out today, I thought they were gonna hurt like hell, because some of them had buried themselves deep. but when he got his doctor in training to start taking them out , it was like a pin prick, at least now I can watch tv and play poker, without my underwear trying to pull them out.

well I havn't up dated this blog in a while, so i'm still sitting at home like i have been since the operation Thumbs Up I went for my M.R.I. on monday apr 14th, as it turns out the arteries they operated on in the right leg are open and working fine, they checked the liver and heart and both are in good health,so now we are finally ready for the amputation, of the big toe and part of the left side of the right foot, hopefully it can be done soon so i'm over this crap and the pain it causes, even my oxycodone (narcotics) can only do so much for the pain.well i'll post when i have the op, and the results, seems i'm gonna have to learn to walk again' due to balance problems, Confused we'll see how it goes. Big Smile

Such symptoms can be caused by diabetes.







As a type 1 diabetic I know the importance of taking care of your extremitries. I totally agree with Mahdrof, us men are the worst for going to hospital. As the advert says when you gotta go you gotta go or something like that.

Glad to hear things aren't too bad for you though crash and it would be good for all of us to hear that you are making a full recovery. (Unlike Party Poker - sorry wrong blog)


Gl all....................

unlikely. diabetes usually presents with numbness/tingling. most cases of pain in foot in diabetes is related to ulceration/wound/infections

pain of this severity with bluish discolouration is characterisic of ischemic pathology.

surprising thing is sudden onset of disease, though it might be due to some embolus.

and those injections in ur abdomen must be low mol wt heparin

anyways gl with ur surgery, quit smoking if u can.

so just counting down the days now, the operation to remove the left part of the right foot is next friday at 8am. hopefully everything goes well and I'll be back to work, sitting around playing poker is a bit of a drag, and i've been doing it since mid feb. Worship can't wait to go back Worship

Just like to say the operation was a success , they removed the toe and infected area around it, it will take a number of weeks for it to completely heal, and then i'll finally be able to return back to work. Worship I have to admit my surgeon is very good at the kind of surgery he does. He managed to save my leg and foot, and the only loss was my big toe. Thumbs Up So if you read the first post and get any of the symptoms , see a doc right away. Thanks for reading this blog. Thumbs Up
