I broke my toe

It turns out my toe is broken. The tons of ibuprofen I'm taking for my tendonitis were masking symptoms. Like my toe didn't swell up that much. However it remained this lovely black color and the pain started getting worse on Friday so I went to Urgent Care.

Urgent Care said I broke off a piece of my second toe. They said it should heal on its own but I need to go see a podiatrist. I want to go see the same doctor who looked at my ankle before. Then I can tell him I broke my foot just so I could see him again. Ha. No, he was a good doctor.

C said he was concerned that this relates to my diagnosis of borderline osteopina. I've never broken anything in my life before. Sprained my ankle tons of times even ripped all the liagments in my foot, but no breaks.

I don't have a cast, but get to wear this lovely shoe 24 hours a day. I tried taking it off at night, but my toe hurt worse.

Hey, it could be uglier!

I'm so sorry about your toe. Those hurt, and they can't do much for them.

OW! Hope you heal faster now that you and the docs know what the issue is.

Ow ow ouch! Foot injuries suck. I hope your toe heals quickly.

That shoe certainly is something. You'd think they'd offer wacky colors to offset its...style. (Like other colored casts and splints.)

Been to broken toe land and it SUCKS. Sorry to hear it. Like you don't have enough on your plate.

Sorry to have been MIA recently--in addition to the computer issues, I've picked up a class to teach at UIC and am frantically trying to prep. So, I've been out of blog-land for about 3 weeks. Catching up with you tonight and sending you all good thoughts.

Broken toe
Hope your toe is OK now. I broke my left pinky toe yesterday and today it's more swollen and I can't walk on it at all - I'm hopping throughout the house. I'm envious of your black sandal - mine is navy and white - lovely. Maybe I can spray paint it black.
