I just had surgery on my foot. 2 days later i developed fracture blisters and a strep infection. Are these related to the surgery?
Displaced fracture of 5th phalanx of foot 4 weeks ago The toe is black, dull pain feels heavy, detached & numb. Skin feels blister like with fluid.

My broken bones r healed. Want to quit roxycodone. Should i taper or quit cold turkey using clonidine?
X-Ray: An x-ray can determine the answer to both of those questions.

If you sustained an injury, an x-ray can also see if a growth plate was fractured. ...Read more
