podiatrist appointment today, stepped on something

and it broke skin and thing is I think it is still in the sole of my foot....I want the podiatrist to take it out if they can dig it out of my foot....ugg I know this is going to hurt,...hopefully he uses some lidocaine on it and numbs my foot before digging in that hole...minor surgery whatever....I just feel there is something sharp inside the sole of my foot....plus may talk to him about ankle which is shooting some pains as if arthritis is in there....
