I had an appointment today at the podiatry office. I had been being treated for a planters wart on the bottom of my foot for several months by my usual Dr. Since it was not responding to treatment (in fact it was getting larger, instead of smaller) she decided to send me to someone more familiar with feet problems, then she is. In fact today was supposed to be “cut out the wart day instead of doing the usual freeze it thing“.
After some scraping and extensive poking and looking at the bottom of my foot for an hour...he said “I think we need to do a biopsy, as I think this might be cancer”
Crap!!!!!!!!! Not again!!!!!!!!!!!!! This would make 4 TIMES of unrelated cancers!!!!
He wanted to do it today, but I said no...
1. my Spousal Unit is on crutches after slipping on ice a couple of days ago and rupturing a tendon in the back of his calf.
2. It s the holidays and I have too much to do (cookies to make, more chocolates to be done, presents to be wrapped, grandbabies to be loved)
3. I do not want both Hubby and I both on crutches during the Holidays with kids home from school!
Come Jan 5th, the Dr is going to do a “hole punch biopsy” in the arch of my foot, so they can rule out cancer. Unfortunately, the Dr said that procedure will get me off my feet for almost 2 months!
Please, say a little prayer as I do not want to have to go through cancer and the various treatments again....
