'My Feet Are Killing Me': Savannah reveals her boyfriend has never seen her toe because she is embarrassed
Savannah admitted she wanted to wear heels to her prom but couldn't because her feet would hurt
Dr Ebonie Vincent has been keeping herself busy during lockdown by meeting her patients. In the October 29 episode, Dr Ebonie met her patient Savannah Joseph, who has a big toe that has been affecting her life deeply. Savannah revealed she was born with a condition called Macrodactyly, in which a person has several overgrown toes.
Savannah revealed her second toe was as big as an adult toe when she was a baby. When she was six, she removed the big toe. However, her problem has not been solved as she has another toe that is large in size. Savannah revealed the bottom part of her foot would feel uncomfortable because of the toe. She added that her condition would limit her choices of footwear. Savannah admitted she wanted to wear heels to her prom but couldn't because her feet would hurt. Despite getting five surgeries done, her feet have not become any better. It has reached a point where Savannah does not want to show her toe to her boyfriend.
Dr Ebonie was shocked to find out that her boyfriend had never seen her toe. Savannah explained that even if he had, there was no conversation about why it looked like that. Dr Ebonie then asked Savannah to perform some lunges to see how pressure on the toe affected her. Savannah revealed there was a pain she felt at the side of her toe. She said it felt like "knives and needles" were poking her. However, when she tried moving the toe up and down using her hand, it did not hurt. Dr Ebonie explained that Savannah had two joints in one toe and it had been the reason for her toe to look big.
At the same time, she explained the pain was connected to the bone that was being pushed out at the side of her foot. Dr Ebonie suggested they fuse the bone together and remove the soft tissue around it. She suggested it would help Savannah walk freely and comfortably. However, before this, she has to run some physical exam on Savannah just to be sure that she was ready for the treatment.
