They took xrays to make sure there wasn't a barb, gave me a tetanus shot and sewed the wound shut. I had to go back to the ER (different er,same company) and was told I had a blood infection (celeuitis) and was given an oral antibiotic and sent home,half way through my antibiotic my leg became worse with swelling and infection, I had to quit my day job weeks earlier than expected because I couldn't be on my feet for the duration of two jobs a day. I went back to the ER and they told me that it looks like it "might be getting better" .but gave me another bacterial antibiotic they took the stitches out since I was admit to have them removed. now having to see wound specialist, to try to heal this now 3cm wide by 2cm open wound. it has been over 2 months since incident.
