How long did it take for your broken toe to heal?
I walked into a mean bookcase almost a month ago. Fractured my small toe. Was kind of a strange situation, being that some time in my life, the bone in the tip of my pinkie fused together with the bone that it connect to, basically making it one bone... Well, it broke on the fuse line. Well, anyway, it's been about a month, and my small toe is still swollen to almost double. Most of the bruising has faded, though there is still light bruising in some places. It's damn near impossible to bend it like normal and if I even try, the most excruciating pain shoots through it. It's a bit warm with a pinkish tint. I have to wear a VERY fashionable surgical shoe because I work 8+ hours a day, and socks sometimes hurt it. How long will this keep up? When should I worry, if at all? Is it normal for a month old broken toe to look like a Vienna sausage? Why is my bookcase so mean? Please help.
