He then proceeds to quickly set up an area and a few surgical tools and before I know it, he is cutting away skin from my foot....WITHOUT any anesthetic. The nurse is talking up a storm to me and I realize that it's in order to distract me. Of course, at the same time I realize this, I also begin to feel EVERYTHING the doctor is doing.
When he is done, I am told I can put my shoes on and go. No instructions or aftercare. No one seems phased by any of this. I look down and I have red, raised lesions and stitches running in a continuous line around the sides of my feet, around and in between each toe.
My feet feel better.
I wonder where my skin went....hmmm....
