2nd Opinion

It's been 2.5 weeks since the cabinet door jumped ship. So when I received a letter yesterday from the hospital, I presumed it was the invoice receipts which I need to send to my insurance company for reimbursement. (Oh yes, international medical insurance paperwork is even more fun than domestic!)

It was not.

Two weeks later...a second opinion arrives

Left Foot Xray

Left hallux: I am not convinced a fracture has been demonstrated. A small osteophyte is noted on the medial aspect of the terminal phalanx."

Translation - "Your toe ain't broke but you do have a bone spur." From the Radiologist.

Um, isn't 14 days after the fact a tad late to be providing an opinion on a bone's structural integrity?  According to my doctor, a foot surgeon, my bone is supposed to be set well enough for regular footwear come Tuesday. That's 5 days away!


The saga continues...

  1. How is the toe? Did you take the aircast off when you received the letter? I hope it is healing well. It has been the summer of the broken toe for you and for my family.
