4 Years ago I have the 2nd toe on my left foot amputated. I am diabetic, the toe got broken and developed gangrene.
I don't have a "stump" where the toe was, it's a even cut. Yes the big toe has bent towards the empty space. When you first look at my foot you can't really tell I have a toe missing. I never wearing sandals so no one sees my feet so that's really no big deal for me, personally.
For about 2 years after the amputation I had phantom toe pains often. These past 2 years they have almost stopped. I can now tell the weather via my missing toe area believe it or not. The site hurts like the dickens 2 days before rain or snow comes LOL!
Hope this has helped some.. if you have anymore questions just ask
