What is this disgusting thing on my ankle? ?
I want to get rid of this so bad. I hate it and I got it for wearing a pair of shoes that had a broken piece of what felt like a metal inside them. I wore them for a whole day and it was constantly stabbing the back of my foot. I want to get rid of it but don’t know how or even what it is. Help!!

If all I saw was the picture, I'd call it a wart. But that doesn't fit in with the history you provided.
So I'll say that it's a rather large corn. Which is easier to treat than a wart.
I don't see signs of infection. Get rid of the offending shoes, and protect this area with first-aid tape, or (better) moleskin, while it heals. As long as there are no signs of infection, that should do it.

Go to a doctor or an emergency room. If you get infection into that area, it can be extremely dangerous. You are risking being unable to walk.
