    That's it. Playing water football in the pool of all things. I taped it to the toe next door to keep it straight, just wondering if there's anything else or just patiently wait? It doens't hurt too bad but I hate having a lot of activity curbed. /forums/images/icons/mad.gif

    Don't kick the dog with it.

    J/K. Depends a little on which toe. If it's the baby toe, it'll heal without too much trouble if you keep it immobile. If it's your big toe, you probably should see a doctor.

    it's the one right next to the baby toe.

    And it's not a problem with me kicking the dog, it's a problem with her kicking me...man she's rowdy!!

    I broke 2 toe's in November. Only problem is I broke them way back in my foot. I had to have surgery and have pins put in the bone to hold it together till it healed, I was on crutches till April. It wasn't fun at all. Ever try to Rotate tires while on crutches /forums/images/icons/grin.gif . I almost went crazy from not being able to do what i wanted.

    So far I've broken all but 2 toes and I'm planning on breaking them by Christmas, just tape them up. I've done 3 at once, hard to tape them then, you know.......... while screaming /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif
    As long as they are not broken near your foot they should be okay taped together. Keep them taped for a couple of weeks, CHANGE THE TAPE A COUPLE OF TIMES A DAY!!!!! It starts to smell. You should be okay after that, I survived softball season last summer with two broken, you should be okay.

    I don't even know when it happend, someone pointed it out to me once and now it's my favorite "scar" = freaks people awt. /forums/images/icons/grin.gif (I think it happend when I was a kid and kicked the the pool, thats the only time I can remember)

    Sometimes it "&gt;pops&lt;" in the morning, takes a bit to walk it out.

    "Step, pop, step, pop, step, pop, step...stub, step, stumble, stumble, drag, drag, fall"

    "cry"

    Why? Nothings wrong with it. It's just a toe, I do have nine other fully functing toes to work with. It does make steel-toed boots a bit tuff to fit tho'. Eventualy the thing 'ill self-clearnce the boot and all-is well.
    You would not believe the callus built up on that thing. /forums/images/icons/grin.gif
