This is my right foot shoe.
It hurt my foot, I think.
I took my exercise from four miles a day to five miles a day a few months ago, either walking or jogging, so I could continue to eat (occasionally) poorly.
I developed these sores on the right foot, mid-step. Bunions they were called. Callouses? They went deep. They hurt. Three times now foot docs have shaved them off.
Just on the right foot, not the left foot.
This last time the doc told me Medicare will not pay for this anymore. (I'm new to Medicare and finding out about kinds of things that are not paid for).
Rather than buy a scalpel, I changed shoes into Xeros, but these things are really light and do not protect my ankles. It feels like I am running in my socks.
So I’m calling on Geezer Jocks, like you. 9-1-1.
Can I buy pads to put on the side of my foot to prevent the bunions?
What other solutions are out there for a 65-year old wuss?
One foot doc suggested pumice, but geez, I use pumice to scrape the grill. Do I really want to scrape at my foot with pumice? This doc is a really smart lady, so I’m going to try.
