It had never occurred to LeFlore that his heavy smoking might cause him to lose his leg.
“I started having problems walking on my right leg and it started swelling up and my toes started turning dark,” LeFlore recalled.
“I had trouble getting my shoe on, so I started soaking my foot in warm water and wearing sandals all the time. Being an athlete, I had built up a high tolerance for pain ... I just let it go.
“When my toe turned black, I started picking at it — and a piece of my toe came off in my hand. When I saw that, I said, ‘Oh, my God!’ ”
That was when LeFlore decided he had better see a doctor.
