Tip of the Moment (laser surgery)

Tip of the moment: Don't walk on fresh laser surgery wounds.

I recently had some laser surgery done on my foot. Although the doctor insisted I would be able to walk on it, it began bleeding profusely the next day. He insisted it was okay and I should just walk on my toes instead of my heel, where the bleeding wound was. I couldn't seem to convince him I was doing this already.
