Tara Batista told WFTS that a few hours after she left a nail salon where she got a pedicure, she began to feel weak, and the next day felt severe pain in her leg.
Family members drove Batista to the emergency room a day and a half later, when her foot turned black and she could not stand on her leg, WFTS reports.
Doctors told Batista that she suffered a severe leg infection and needed to undergo surgery. Medical records obtained by WFTS revealed Batista had a deep injury on her left big toe that turned into a severe bacterial infection.
The nail salon refused to comment since there is “no conclusive proof” Batista got the infection there, but she said the woman who gave her the pedicure dug too far into her skin, and she told her “to ease up a bit,” according to WFTS.
Batista said she now has a catheter in her leg and needs care from a home health nurse for six weeks, WFTS reports.
