The Magicman Ugly Foot Club
« on: June 24, 2019, 09:42:37 AM »
I just joined!
I was running my mill by myself Saturday, went to take a board off the mill, it slipped and BANG, down on my foot. Nothing broken (that I can tell) but it sure had me hopping around on one foot stringing together some new words!

I have been having trouble with planters foot lately so I have been wearing tennis shoes. I know, should have been wearing my boots, that would have helped a lot.

Sorry Jon, I had trouble with plantars for many years (over 30, I lost count) while working on concrete floors. Good quality footwear is a major help, but when you have to dig a small 'pebble' out of the ball of your foot every week or two it can get pretty miserable. That can be treated, I believe it is actually a virus. Mostly I just went for the mechanical method, but was miserable a lot of the time. When I moved up into engineering and design, the problem slowly faded, as did my knee problems. They were replaced by carpal tunnel syndrome. ;DI found a natural fix for that (proper exercises several times a day), and that never came back. The Doc wanted to cut me open. I haven't seen that guy since. ;D I also started gaining weight, but for some reason that disappeared around the time I started cutting trees, making firewood and got a sawmill. The last Doc I saw said I was in perfect shape for a man my age. I asked him if he knew I was 29?  ;D

 Yeah, the sneakers explain the damage. I had thought the slab came down behind your steel toe and caught you. That has happened to me. The problem with steel toes is that you know you have that protection and tend to work with it. I use my toe as a log chock quite often, it's a bad habit. If that log ever over-runs the toe up onto my foot I am not only in a world of hurt, but I am stuck under a log with nobody around to help me get out. An 1,800 pound log can go a long way before it stops rolling, even if my leg and will power are telling it to stop. Nearly got bit again just the other night.
 We gotta be careful, you got lucky although I doubt you feel like a winner today.

   Can't we put this in the restricted topics so the rank and file aren't exposed to such! :o :o

    Reminds me of when I first got my mill and took it up to my son's place to saw some stuff for him. He and I were carrying a 6' log about a foot in diameter and he dropped it on my right foot. I don't know if he broke any toes or not but it felt like it and I lost the nail off my big toe. To make matters worse I went back a few days later to get the mill and when we went to hook it to the truck he dropped a landing gear right on the same spot. electricuted-smiley

   I hope you heal up soon.

Was in the kitchen one evening using a sharp pointed knife.  Only socks on.  Knife dropped out of my hand and point first downward.  Before I could move my foot it stuck my big toe between joints.  You talk about hurt.  There is still blue air by the counter.  Sore for quite a while. But healed up fine.  Do chefs wear steel toes?

Yesterday the toes turned purple but otherwise it's not too tender to walk on.
I don't think we'll have to amputate.

When I was a boy and would hurt myself Mom and Dad would act like they were trying to make a hard decision and then wind up saying "Well I don't think well have to amputate."

Last pic I promise.
The board landed across my foot right behind the toes so I'm wondering why there's bruising back by my heel.
It looks bad but really doesn't hurt much. I'm walking without a limp.
Just don't step on my foot!

I too have hammer toe issues. Recently had surgery to correct/improve.  The way they had curled was causing the toe(s) to get sore after a lot of walking or working.  I thought it was because of the toe nail maybe.  Doc said it was the end of the bone getting irritated from the rubbing. Since I met my insurance deductible with the neck fusion it was time.  Been wearing a hard boot since the surgery 4/12 and look forward to shedding that after tomorrow's appointment.

The sayings that I was not particularly thrilled with as a kid suffering from an injury was 'cry real fast and get it over with'  and 'it will feel better when it quits hurting'!

WV, i will not comment on where your groin bruise might end up due to the FF policy on words, and it is after all a family site.   :D :D :D   :o :o :o   :) :) :).  WS if your bruise makes it to your groin, then you are standing on your head too long. ;) @WV Sawmiller   @Weekend_Sawyer

This is kind of fascinating Doc! SO you are saying dependent lividity is a potential in all injuries? Or would this not be considered dependent lividity? The only time I have seen dependent lividity in is patients that have ceased complaining.

dependent lividity (livor mortis) is the fourth stage of death, and rigor mortis (post mortem rigidity) is the third stage.  so bruises (blood leaked out of capillaries) can migrate before death, and after death it is not really a bruise as it is still in the capillaries but the red cells settle to the bottom since the blood is not being agitated by the heart beat and blood flow. algor mortis is the second stage and reflects a change in temp.  pallor mortis is the first stage of death and is after death paleness.  all these words were coined long before any real understanding from Greek and Latin.  So if you push on a bruise it may blanch and be tender, lividity is painless...except for the family.

OK, so clearly it is not dependant lidivity. I had the wrong term and an incomplete understanding. I just find it fascinating that a bruise, or rather the discoloration could move like that. Of course, I have always dealt with these within minutes of occurrence, and dependant lividity hours after occurrence. Both of these I have seen more than my share of. It's nice to understand them better. I have had plenty of patients complain about bruises, never one that complained about lividity. ;D :D :(
 Of all things things I learn about on the FF, this is not one I would have expected, but I will take it and file it away. Thanks!

as a pediatrician, we try to understand bruising a little, so we can tell abnormal bruising (abuse) from normal.  some kids are born with birth marks called Mongolian spots and can be confused with abuse as it is usually located on the low back, not a normal place for kids to get a bruise.  The shin is a normal place for kids to get a bruise and means they got to go to grandpa's house and play outside.  If a child is seen with a bump to the forehead and a few days later with a black eye, it could be confused with abuse.  We do not want to over or under diagnose abuse.  dropping a board on your foot is self abuse, unless the bruise migrates to the groin then we have some "splaining to do".   8)   :)  
@Old Greenhorn  NOT terms we use every day and I looked them up on Wikipedia to be sure.  ;)

AH! OK. I had thought this was a gross oversight in my education. Now I don't feel so bad. Good knowledge none the less, it allows for more careful analysis of a very common injury. My Grandsons are routinely providing me with practice in the more mundane stuff that I didn't have much contact with previously. The last couple of years, I have been getting better with the pediatric 'conditions'. Contusions, abrasions, hematomas, etc. Lots of ecchymosis.
