broken foot with lots of bruising
I am a working cowboy and recently had a horse fall on my foot.
The doctor says that I broke my 5th metatarsel.
The problem is that the break doesn’t hurt.
My toes and other metatarsels are black and killing me.
I have been told to hang tight until the swelling goes down and then I will be reexamined.
Until then I have quistions.
why are the bases of my toes blue and sore?
Does it have to do with the fracture or are they sprained?
Can I do anything to help diminish the swelling?
Any information is appreciated.
