Broken Toe Update/Whine

Friday, September 10, 2010

Call yourself warned, the whine part is in the title! :)

I broke my toe May 27th and a week later it was set as it was badly out of place and then sent home to heal. I saw the orthopaedic a time or two after that, but he said that I don't need to see him again. He had said that it may swell for up to three months afterwards. Now what I want to know is, when does it become too long? How long does such a thing really swell/really take to heal?

It has now been 3 1/2 months since I broke my toe. I am back to my old routine of exercising 60 minutes per day, almost every day, but the toe still swells (much less than it used to.), and still dull aches on occasion. I often times go barefoot at work (part-time church secretary) as the toe hurts a bit less when it breaths and isn't too warm. I get sweaty feet sometimes, always have, but now I am getting used to leaving my shoes off and sockless at work. This is becoming harder to do though with the cooler temperatures, but my toe is still aching today.

And I guess overall, I am just getting frustrated, as I thought by the end of summer, my toe would not bother me anymore. Yes, it doesn't bother me much, less than tired feet after a day of standing, but isn't it time that it was healed? Anyone here break a toe that took forever to heal? Is that normal, or is something wrong?

    I haven't had a broken toe...but, I'm sorry that you are still having the problem.

    Never had a broken toe, but have rammed it around a chair leg, and that hurt for months, but I would check with the doctor, since it is longer then three months.

    Sorry to hear that your toe is still bothering you. If it were me I think I would call the Dr. Office and see if it has gone too long or just something you will need to deal with.

    Hang in there. It does take a long time for you to get rid of the pain even after it heals. emoticon
