    Thanks David for asking - suitable question indeed. (Though I hope you'll cease to think that nine months of being alive is a waste :cool:) * Finally started to listen to the 20+hrs long audio book (in german) of Das Glasperlenspiel - The GlassBeadGame - by Hermann Hesse - that I had purchased...

    Deep_Puncture_wound_right foot. What helped you w/ similar experience?

    yikes - that was the sort of scenario i had envisioned simply based on the pain in the first few days. Mercifully, all particles got out, and today, day VI, i managed to step/move without hiking-pole for the most part. Am confident it will continue to improve based on the...

    UPDATE: 🦶 👣 🌺 🙏 Mucho Thanks to one and all who were so kind to take time, consideration, and offered their suggestions, links and insights. It truly helped me to assess and gauge all this much better. Even just the affirmation that deep puncture wounds are very painful is helpful. And yes...

    Deep_Puncture_wound_right foot. What helped you w/ similar experience?

    Greetings and Ola' I researched the forum postings - hoping to find insights /shares by someone who experienced a deep-puncture wound and what had helped, how strong pain-level, time to heal, etc. As I wasn't lucky finding collective pilgrim wisdom and hope to be forgiven to pose a question on...

    Comment by 'amorfati1' in media 'Convent San Anton'

    .... and interestingly enough - it's also called St.Anthony's Fire . (wondering if it's related?) And not sure if it can be called a 'disease' as it was a poisoning by ingesting that fungus grown on a grain. and in proper dosages, apparently also used as a healing-remedy. either way, as for all...
