YOW, my sister in AZ has told me of her ongoing problems with PF for years, definitely no fun.
As of last Thursday the main problem has been the swelling around an below the big and second toes and the forefoot. It's looked a very angry red but the podiatrist said that's from swelling and not infection. But due to that, still no clearance to work, and my boss is none to happy because we're already way short staffed (one of my co-workers had simultaneous wrist and knee surgery 16 months ago, and due to complications, she's still not back. Because we're both on medical leave, getting a replacement worker is near impossible). Hopefully with this Thursday's visit to the Doc I'll be healed enough to get back working. I'm bored to shit with recuperating, Karen is fed up with doing all the driving, and riding around in The Midgetmobile (1999 Honda CRV) is a pain-in the ass and other places!
Sorry to hear this as well. You work for the USPS, correct? Or some Gvt. agency at least?
