I went for followup visit on Friday. Doc didn't take the bandage off, he told me to do it on Sunday. He gave me a prescription ointment, said to clean it with soap and water, wear a sock and loose fitting shoe for work.<br><br>
He said I can get in the pool as soon as I want. Just don't stay in so long that the toe wrinkles and the sticthes pull out. And I can start biking and running whenever I feel ready. I may do some water running first.<br><br>
I go back on Wednesday and he'll decide then when to take the sticthes out.<br><br>
So, I'll miss a duathlon next weekend. All the guys in my AG are thankful.<img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"><br><br>
The tri on Mar 30 is still up in the air.<br><br>
Some nasty pics. Look if you dare.<br><br><br><br><br>
What I've been wearing for the last 5 days<br><img alt="" src="http://i108.photobucket.com/albums/n31/kylemcmi/100_1861-1.jpg" style="border:0px solid;"><br><br><br>
It cut the nail in half and a made good slice down the top of the toe. Looks like 9 stiches.<br><img alt="" src="http://i108.photobucket.com/albums/n31/kylemcmi/100_1868.jpg" style="border:0px solid;"><br><br><br><br>
Where the saw tip came out. 4 stiches.<br><img alt="" src="http://i108.photobucket.com/albums/n31/kylemcmi/100_1871.jpg" style="border:0px solid;">

Those are actually pretty fine looking pics... you've got some nice healing going on. And you're darned lucky you didn't hit bone! (Might've had to buy a new blade. <img alt="wink.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/wink.gif"> )<br>
And I'd definitely stay out of the open water until it's all healed. Not so much for the "chumming the waters" aspect... more for the "gunk in the waters" aspect.<br><br>
Heal quickly!

Dah, that's nuthin'. Guess having four boys (and multiple trips to the ER) has kinda dulled me...<br><br>
btw--next time wear steel toed boots! I have 'em and I wear 'em! Quite the fashion statement when I had to take son #2 to the ER when he attempted to amputate his finger while cutting firewood.

Yikes...glad it wasn't more serious to begin with, and keep healing up there!<br><br>
That's cool that you're allowed into the pool, but I was just thinking - are you allowed to push off the wall with those stitches and everything?

I've had steel toed boots in the past. I don't like them. I have to kneel down so much when working and the metal digs into the tops of my toes. Better than a saw blade I guess, but how often does that happen?<br><br>
Maggie, Yes I'm doing the 1/4 IM at Lonestar. Or least I hope too. I'll see how the next couple of weeks goes.

Yeah - I have to wear steel caps for work, finally gave in and bought a pair couple of weeks ago. But I have never hurt my foot at work. Head, wrist, hand, knee. No feet. Touch wood!<br><br>
