In partial wt bearing w/ boot & crutches for a bone fusion on top of foot at 8 wks could I have caused the bone to unfuse by putting too much pressure?

Unlikely: As long as you are healthy and have been following all instructions from your surgeon... the fusion site should be close to healed.... Xrays and your level of pain will dictate that. Check with your doc if you are still concerned! ...Read more

6 wks ago I broke my rt. Ankle & have a boot. I found a bump on the bottom of my foot that is painful. Could these be related?

Fracture ankle: Need to recall if painful bump on foot has been there since the ankle fracture. It may be a secondary consequence of using the walker boot. Sometimes we change the area on our foot where we bear weight when we r healing an ankle fracture. Subsequently it results in production of a painful area which may feel very firm. It will usually resolve as the fracture heals and your gait improves. ...Read more

Afraid I have sarcom on top of foot after bump and large bruise. Was told broken vessel after x-ray and cancer wouldn't bruise like that. Is this true?

Afraid I have sarcom on top of foot after bump and large bruise. Was told broken vessel after x-ray and cancer wouldn't bruise like that. Is this true?

Hematoma, not sarcom: You most likely have a hematoma (a pooled collection of blood clots underneath the skin), a common condition that can occur after a physical injury. It's more common if you are on blood thinners. Sarcomas are usually slow-growing lumps (takes months/yrs). The only way to be sure is to perform a biopsy. Continue treatment, but talk to a doc who knows you well, esp if not healing. Or use HT Prime. ...Read more

3 1/2 weeks ago broke 4th metatarsal nondisplaced. In walking boot. Yesterday walked a lot & today top of foot is sore. Could I have displaced the fractured bone by wearing the walking boot too long?

3 1/2 weeks ago broke 4th metatarsal nondisplaced. In walking boot. Yesterday walked a lot & today top of foot is sore. Could I have displaced the fractured bone by wearing the walking boot too long?

Unlikely based on: Time already passed since diagnosis and you were wearing the walking boot. It justs sounds like you are appropriately sore due to the time on it. If it does not improve with some elevation and rest overnight see your physician is symptoms are bothersome but unlikely anything else needs to be done. ...Read more

Yesterday green lump that looked like large vein appeared on top of foot. Felt bruised. Today it's a small red bump surrounded by green bruise. Dvt?

In theory: It would not be a DVT as the D stands for deep. There is the dorsal venous arch that could get a clot but it would be superficial. Clots in the foot are usually very painful to the exact spot of the clot. If you still have something there why not go get it checked out.... ...Read more

Will get better: Many common viruses can cause bumpy red rashes all over. However, a toddler with a rash after a high fever breaks may very well have ROSEOLA, or exanthem subitem, which is identified by this appearance after high fever. It is common and goes away by itself. Your child should be getting better and behaving normally. Best wishes! ...Read more

Let's face it, a lot of these conditions have the same general appearance. A real time exam or at least several high quality images are necessary for an accurate opinion. ...Read more
