I jumped onto a glass bottle,and cut my foot as it smashed. There was alot of blood but the cut was tiny. The next day i could hardly weight bear and alot of my foot was bruised, I couldn't go to a & e as I had to go to work. 3 days on my little toe started to look bruised and the pain in the ball of my foot was still there. I suspected glass was still in my foot so I soaked in epsom salts and i found tiny fragments of glass coming out. I have left it to heal for 5 weeks but still have alot of pain in the ball of my foot, I can't bend my 4th little toe as easy as my others the same toe that was bruised. I have been to the doctors today and she sent me for an x-ray. The x-ray showed that I have no glass left in the foot but bone growth where the impact happened? They said it usually takes months for this to develop and there is nothing they can do but send the report off to my doctor. Is this normal?
