This is the first time I have ever broken a toe. I haven't been to the doc but I am sure it is broken. My third toe over. Ran into the couch, the top of my foot and bottom of that toe turned blue. Swelled real good too. I have been "buddy" taping my toe to the next toe for a week now. How long, do any of you know, will I need to buddy tape before it is safe for me to try and bend my toe?
Thanks to anyone that could help. A broken toe really is the pits!!!
I can't remember how long I taped them, maybe a week or 2. As for bending, I don't recall that either. Just take it easy on your feet till they feel better. Yes, they were black & blue for about 2 weeks, and swollen. Try a ice pack on you foot to reduce the swelling. I was out of work 2-3 weeks with my first break, my second & third one just a day or 2. If it doesn't get any better after 2 weeks go have it checked.
