    My advice is to have this checked out by a specialist-either a podiatrist or orthopedist, depending on your location. A x-ray and possibly a MRI may be helpful in determining the extent of your injury. I assume that you are not in the United States since Bextra (Valdecoxib) was taken off the market here several months ago. Podiatrists in some countries outside of the US do not do surgery, if necessary.
