    Unhappy broken little toe not healing!!


    So about 5 weeks ago, I broke my little toe on my left foot, I went to emergency and they x ray'd it and confirmed it was a nasty break. It happened as I was trying to get my very heavy dog to bed and I some how got it caught in one of his feet and it snapped. I heard it snap and everything. Anyway 5 weeks have passed and it's not healing properly, I have been put into a Moon Boot which I have had for 2 weeks now I have had 2 x rays, the latest one I went for today.
    The toe is still quite sore, I still can't pull normal shoes on, the bruising keeps re appearing, it's just so annoying for something as simple as a toe.
    My doctor mentioned possibly needing to get pins in it? What exactly does that entail? How long does it take to heal and so on? I am going overseas in 3 months time.

    Thanks on advance, it's all just a bit scary to me!

    Just make sure you take care of it before you leave. Your trip could be uncomfortable if you have pain.
    Ya gotta know how your body WORKS before you can figure out how to HEAL an ILLNESS.
