Hope you heal up good.
My feet are pretty ugly with hammer toes.
I wear Sketchers steel toe sneakers or Ariat steel toe cowboy boots at the mill, but they dont help if something lands on your instep

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."

Did we have the same parents?  :D

For some reason, my parents only discussed amputation when I hurt my head.....

Pete, I have the same affliction and also wear the Sketchers, but I go with the composite toe to cut down on the weight.

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!

Danny I think mine are composite also.
These have worn like iron but after nearly 3 years I ready for a new pair.

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'!

Doc,

   You scared me there for a bit with the WS instead of WV. I thought you were replying to my groin injury comments.  smiley_sweat_drop

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.
