Patient :I was recently diagnosed with RSD in my left foot as well as a lisfranc injury (partial tear suspected)
Whenever I try to get a work boot on my foot swells and I have bruising along the top and side of foot.
I was informed I need to get the rsd under control before I consider surgery...is the boot a detriment to my recovery and could I do further damage ?
