    Default Broken toe

    Im pretty sure i broke my little toe earlier

    Is it worth going to the doctor, or will they just tape it to the next one (which i could do myself)?

    It hurts to walk on, its swollen & looks bruised & theres a small lump on the top of it

    I took panadol for the pain (im breastfeeding so cant take much else), keeping it elevated as much as i can & icing it. Should i do anything else?

    Just what i need right now

    Hugs, ive done it before, hurts like a mofo

    They just taped mine, said there isnt much else they can do. Sounds like you are pretty much doing everything they would tell you to anyway.

    It really depends where the break is, I would go to the doctor because its always best to get it checked out.

    I am off for xrays today because I have possibly broken my big toe or done something else not great to my foot. Better to be safe than sorry

    Its not fun but you will be ok I ruptured my ACL when my DS2 was 7 months old and was on crutches in a full leg brace for 3 months. Youd be amazed how much you adapt to make it work

    (If I was you I'd totally use this as leverage to get your playpen )

    Definitely get a GP to show you how to tape it correctly. I broke a toe and yes the bruising spread right up my foot. I figured it just needed taping, no need to see Dr. A few weeks later I was in for something else, mentioned it and they showed me the correct way to pad and tape it - oh so much better than what I had been doing!
