broken 3rd toe

I broke the 3rd toe on my right foot.
It is not a clean break..
The fracture starts on the end bone at the knuckle and goes through the middle of the bone and the up at a 45 degree angle.
The “chunck” of bone slid up and forward and came out at the root of my nail..
They have tried to set it and the chunck of bone has slid back up and is healing in the wrong place.
My doctor said I now need to have surgery to put a screw in and to shave off some of the middle bone.
There is pain in the toe but it is tolerable..
Do you think this is needed?
