Pinky Toe- hairline fracture/tendon/ Ligments

Hi there Doctor. I am 27 years old, & accidentally banged my foot against the wall HARD. The pinky toe became all black the next day. I iced it, and taped it. Top of foot (by the toe)was black & blue for the 1st week. The following week I got 4 x-rays. The podiatrist, said "may be" hairline fracture, but pain and swelling probaly from "ripped liamnets and tendons." Nice help he was! He didn't even tape it up for me! What can I do? Please help. IT HURTS!!! I can barley walk on it!! Please help. Thank you.

A silicone insert on the back of the Achillotrain leaves tendon pressure-free and provides intermittent compression for the reduction of swelling and edema.
