Thank you for your prompt and comprehensive responses.
When you state that it is more than a crack what do you mean?
I have been taping with Micropore tape, wrapping it around the base of all my toes. I was told the fracture was in the lower part of the toe. Can you determine that from the radiologist's report. When the nurse wrapped just the small toe and adjacent toe together, it had more pain. For whatever reason, she did not wrap the base of the toe, and told me to do that later. Regardless, should I do the buddy taping, or is entire toe method acceptable? Even when I wrap the entire foot, the more snug the taping the more pain.
I never had acute pain, even when first injured. It was more the location of the two (about 2 o'clock) that had me suspecting a possible fracture.
However, it is now a week, and I still have mild pain. The urgent care doctor recommended I wear shoes to stabilize the toe. I was wearing Adidas County tennis/running shoes (leather not nylon), but he said they were pretty hard and should be sufficient.
I only iced for a day or two, and just taken ibuprofen intermittently the first couple days. I will resume that due to inflammation more than pain; as of Tuesday the toe was still swollen, but it never had any bruising.
Should I ice at this point? I am home due a UTI and am taking Cipro 250mg twice a day.
I set up an appointment with a podiatrist on the earliest date available, Monday afternoon.
Appreciate observations and any further recommendations, including questions to ask the podiatrist.
