Pain in foot

Posted by Marie26 (My Page) on

About one month ago, I was moving a heavy wooden chair and one of its legs banged the top of the outside part of my left foot. I still have a scab where I hit my foot.

I have no pain when I walk but if I touch the spot, I definitely feel pain in that spot. It's hard to tell if there's any swelling there.

I made an appointment to see my GP next week but was wondering if this sounds like anything I should be concerned with. What do you think it could be? Could a bruise just hang on for that long? Are there any special questions I should ask the doctor? TIA

It could be a bruise, could also be a cracked bone.

My X-ray vision is in the shop being fixed, so only a real x-ray machine can tell what it is.
