Re: Broken pinky toe

It is not unusual to have this type of fracture in a toe. Depending on your age, health and if the fracture is in good position, bone callus should be visible by 4-6 weeks. Having said that, being a flight attendant is quite a bit different than going around in a sandal or fracture shoe. An X-ray can show the bone healing. But what is most important is how does it feel in your shoe.

Recently, I saw a shoe made by Easy Spirit that was made of a black spandex material that several of my patients who are flight attendants liked. This is a possibility since it would stretch.

Hang in there, it should heal, but just not as fast as you'd like!
