Foot still a mess after glass removed!

I am hoping for some advice on what to do about my foot. Here's what happened:
February 2010, I stepped on some glass but thought I removed everything. (It felt o.k. enough to walk around Disney World for a week). It gradually bothered me more and more until August 2010, when I went in and had a piece of glass removed.
Now, for the last month or so, I have a painful, white, hard lump in that area. Using a corn pad relieves the pressure, but I am wondering what is happening... is it scar tissue?
Thank you for your time

Re: Foot still a mess after glass removed!

good morning,

you are going to need to see a podiatrist or your primary care physician. sounds like you need an xray.

if any surgery is deemed necessary, i suggest that you have an orthopedic physician who specializes in foot/ankle surgery.

good luck to you.

ps. i'm saw your post because i look at this healthboard every day; having had major foot surgery 3 months ago
