I just broke my little toe also... going on two and a half weeks...
I fell down three steps because while watering my plants outside I saw a huge snake!!!!
Landed hard and I knew instantly I broke a bone
Went to urgent care where they confirmed with X-rays a broken little toe.. but I didn't get a shoe just got it buddy taped.
I hate to tell you this but you are going to hit it a million times... :O
I couldn't really walk on it for about
a week without the use of one crutch... on to my second week I was walking kind of normal except from over compensating all the muscles in my leg are so sore!
After a couple of weeks it gets to the point where you forget... so I was putting on foot cream like I usually do and I "forgot" and heard and felt a little snap... so I am back to square one like it just happened.
I'm so depressed because I was just getting to the point of starting physical therapy from my cervical spine surgery this May.... :(
Best, best advice it stay off it as much as possible and be a baby... it's OK!!
I found that the taping just pulls and hurts it more so I am just staying off of it... propping it up (thank goodness for my adjustable bed!) keep ice and ask for lots of help!
I wish you a speedy recovery... for both our toes!
