Question: Want to be a CNA, but don’t know if I could because of past surgery on my ankle and current pain?

I am currently in the process to take CNA classes. I have yet to get my physical done. Before I get too involved, I was wondering if i would be able to even do this job. I had surgery on my ankle (tendon) a few years ago and I could probably work no more than an 8 hr shift. I cant bend my ankle more than 90 degrees and cant bend/squat due to it. it is in bad shape but i can walk and worked a part time job fine, but had alot of pain. I am 24 years old and do not want to get into this career if it is going to be too difficult for me. I know that this job requires alot of physical labor. I am not sure if I would even pass the physical exam if this came up. I dont want to waste my time if i dont think i could do this. Im afraid to ask the lady that is taking me in for classes because she might turn me down right away knowing this. I guess i just need advice on if this would be okay enough for me to do, anyone that has been involved in this career. Or has similar physical issues being a CNA but can still do the job. Thanks!

Question: I broke my finger in my sleep, how did this happen? Should I be worried?

last night I woke up with an unbearable pain in my middle finger. It was very swollen at the middle section and I was scared, I went to the urgent care and I was told I had a “hairline middle phalanx fracture”. I was sleeping on my hand in an odd position but a broken finger??? I don t understand how this happened, are my bones weak? Does this happen normally? what????

Question: Is it normal to have a panic attack after you accidentally injure yourself?

Today, I was walking to the bathroom to get my phone and I stubbed my toe on the way there. I felt a burning sensation, so I went back to my room. I didn’t pay to much attention to my toe. My sister noticed that my toe was bleeding, and I had ripped my nail halfway. I noticed and my heart felt heavy, and my stomach felt weak. I immediately started hyperventilating, and I couldn’t move for about 18 minutes due to my panic attack. Afterwards, my sister had to bandage my wound for me because I couldn’t handle looking at my toe. Is this a normal thing to do?

Question: If I have a stress reaction in my foot, and I continue to run on it, can it become a stress fracture?

I am having swelling and bruising around my ankle ( not terrible ). I don’t feel the pain unless I am walking on it. When I start walking I don’t feel the pain at first, but as I continue walking, the pain increases. Sometimes unbearable, sometimes not. If I roll onto the side of my foot it hurts very bad. I am able to run through the pain though. I’m not even positive I have a stress reaction. But if I continue to run, can my stress reaction turn into a full on stress fracture?

Question: Lump / Swollen Ankle?

My ankle has been swollen for about a week now. It s a fat lump right under the ankle and i m not sure what to do. For an entire day I had it raised up and put ice on it but that only stopped the pain. Now it hardly hurts at all and is just a fat lump on my ankle; a little blue but not much else. Should I be worried? Will it ever go away?
PS: Sometimes it makes my ankle feel super tense.

Question: How long do you need to be laid up with a broken ankle?

I recently broke my ankle when I slipped on the ice walking to my bus stop. My parents told me I could go back to school after I got my cast on, and I was excited because after being on my mom’s couch for 2 weeks with a splint on I didn’t want to be there any more. So I got my splint changed to a cast and now my parents are saying they don’t want me to go back to school until the cast comes off in a month. I am very disappointed cause I was looking forward to doing something other than sitting on the couch. I’ve already been laid up for 3 weeks, how long should I be laid up for?

Question: Lump on bottom of toe?

I have a hard bump on the base of the underside of my middle toe. It’s very hard Almost feels like bone. It’s a little red bump no bruising. It hurts quite bad and hurts to walk. What could this be? And should I see a doctor? I know that fractures and stuff they can’t do anything for.

Question: I feel bleeding inside my ear. Am I gonna need to get it burned out or cauterized?

A couple days ago during doctor’s visitsfor my cough I mentioned my left ear and poor hearing compared to the other. an the doctor pulled out a lot of wax, thens aid to take enron and come back for a rinsing. Were’ gonna do that one my mom come back home, which’ll be not he weekend I think. But yesterday or the day before I accidentally went a bit far wiping my left ear and a little blood came out and when I went o sleep i could feel it bleeding and now it’s 10:49 am and I feel it again. Is it gonna congeal around my ear? Am i gonna have to get it burned out and cauterized instead of just flushed?
