    My toe is infected yet again. (the same one as the last time). It's the third time:eek: since September and it's been that way for a while now. So we finally made an appointment for today and I go at 3:45. So please wish me good luck:(

    So I went today and everything went really well. He took the toenail out. He numbed my toe with 2 shots of novacain (I almost typed novolog:rolleyes:) and it will be numb for the rest of the night. most of my foot feels kind of numb actually.
    I am to wash the toe in warm soapy water and he gave me eyedrops that are also used on toes, it's an antibiotic, that I'm supposed to use 2 x's a day and I go see him again on Monday. So hopefully that will be the end of that.

    *ouch* I hope everything gets better for good!! I have weird toenail right now, though no infection. I woke up one morning to find a good portion of my toenail gone. It was weird. Now, every time I hit my foot on anything, another chunk comes off. Ugh. Hope yours "gets well soon" LOL!!

    eek!! That's a lot of trouble to go through for an infected toe!! It should get some sense, and stop being infected! :) I hope everything works out for you this time, Kier. :cwds:
