Swollen joint on middle toe

Hi all. First let me say I wish I could post a picture, but I don't have an available URL. My 2 y/o red iguana has a swollen joint on the middle of his middle toe. His hands are orange, but from the swollen joint to the tip, it is discolored, almost a murky yellow color. We went to the Vet ER Saturday, and they said it may just be an injury or something that will heal on its own. They gave me a couple meds and sent me on my way. |
I'm going back for a follow up tonight, but this morning I noticed now the discoloration covers his whole toe now. I was wondering if anyone has had anything similar happen, or if this could be something broken? I'm just worried about the worst case scenario being amputation, that has my anxiety through the roof. Thanks everyone!
