Re: Broken Toe Looks Weird

When they x-rayed it at the hospital, they showed me on the x-ray where it was broken, sort of near the base of the toe, but they said the bone was in position, to just keep it taped up. I have kept it splinted to the next toe since then (2 1/2 weeks ago). When I take the tape off and compare it to my other foot, there is a space between that toe and the next one. On my other foot (my good one) the toes are flush against each other. My main concern is that I still cannot move that toe at all. I had swelling in the toe and foot and a lot of bruising in the beginning, but it is gone now. This may all be perfectly normal. I'm just not sure. Maybe I need to keep it splinted a little longer? How long does it usually take before you can move it again? Thank you so much for your help!!
