10 years ago, my family and I went on a trip to the Bahamas. One night, after returning to the ship, my mom noticed that her foot was swollen. We didn't think much of it at the time and assumed the swelling would go down. However, ten years later, her foot is still badly swollen. She has been to several doctors (including a podiatrist) but no one has been able to help. She is now having pain behind the knee (of the leg which has the swollen foot). Also the foot is occassionally cold to the touch and she is consistently losing a nail on one of the toes. There is no discoloration or sores on the foot. Is it possible that this could be a tropical parasite that she came in contact with in the Bahamas? I truly have no idea where to even begin looking for a local doctor that specializes in such a thing. If anyone can help me, I would so very much appreciate it...Thank you for reading this post.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
