So I broke my toe 3 weeks ago today, I went to the hospital the day it happened as it was bending the other way and I was quite scared. Nurse said to keep it buddy taped for however long and it should heal right, if it's still disfigured I might have to have an op. Skip to last monday I went to another hospital just to have a check up, and the doctor I saw said hes happy for me to keep it buddy taped for another 4-6 weeks and see how I get on, if I have pain still in 2 months then I need to go back. He said I should stop smoking as smoking slows down bone healing. I'm just worried, because it is still wonky, but he said as it's only a little bit it shoulsnt affect my walk of life..but whenever I research about it, it always says having a toe heal wonky is dangerous and will cause more problems in the future? Should I believe what my doctor says? And is it still okay to live with a slightly wonky toe? I'm just scared.
