for a year now I've been noticing my left big toe joint getting more and more painful and more and more swollen/bruised.
i've felt like the biggest whiner complaining about it, but man it hurts!
a trip to the podiatrist and a few X-rays later revealed a super large bone spur and a compacted joint; the compacted joint is probably from an old dance or running injury.
so we tried rounds of steroid shots to see if that would help and it really didn't, so ultimately we decided going in and shaving the bone down and having some area cleared out around the joint would be the best option.
so today this little piggy is getting some work done.
obviously it's not big surgery and I'll be in a boot for about 3 weeks.
i'm not scared of surgery, but man i hate anesthesia.
it makes me super sick.
so I'm going to take a week off and enjoy lots of jello and movies in bed. :)
see you in a week!
