David hopes that Dr. Brad Schaeffer can help him out to make his feet better and less painful
David has been struggling to walk properly ever since his feet developed a foot and nail fungus. To make sure his situation gets better, David decides to go to Dr. Brad Schaeffer with the hope that there will be a light at the end of this tunnel.
Dr. Brad notices that David was finding it hard to walk and asked him if he felt any pain while walking.
David admitted he did and warned him that he might feel sick when he saw the state of his foot. Dr. Brad was not prepared for what he saw once he removed David’s socks.
To make matters worse, David suffered from foot and nail infection on both his feet and things had to be tackled down for both of them.
Dr. Brad knew that the first thing that he had to do was cut his nails but he had to make sure that he doesn’t cut David’s skin while doing that.
David revealed that he has hemophilia, a condition in which blood does not clot normally. To make sure that David does not suffer from any injuries, Dr. Brad knew he had to be very careful.
He warned David that he will feel a lot of pain but will have to handle it if he wanted it to get better. During this time, David revealed that he stopped caring about taking care of his feet five years ago when his mother passed away.
He added that he was very close to his mother and her loss affected him deeply. Dr. Brad understood the feelings David was going through and decided to help him out.
After cutting the nails, Dr. Brad decided to remove the extra skin and flatten the surface by removing the dry and dead skin.
While the entire process took a long time, Dr. Brad was able to make things a little better for David and he was pleased with the results while adding that he would be sure to take care of his feet from now on.
