Still sore after fracture months ago

(3 discussions)

Hello, maybe you can advice?
I fractured my big toe in late August, seemed to show the fracture re united about 6 weeks later. Now I am still getting that sharp pain in my big toe if I bend it under?
If I sit and relax and turn my toe under my foot and push the sharp pain is there, that type of pain that makes you let out a sudden yell.
This is the same if someone bumps my toe inwards or under. Any suggestions, last X-ray shows proximal phalanx (spelling might not be correct) was re united. Very mild swelling but hard to notice, toe is fine providing I continue to be careful.
Would appreciate any views
Thank you

    If the interphalangeal joint cartilage was damaged, it might cause this pain. You should return to the doctor have discuss this.

    If this is the case then what treatment is normally provided? The toe has been swollen since the injury yet its gone down a bit. I will see my doctor within the next week and speak to them about this however I would like to get as much information as possible first, our Doctors are not the best with foot problems (thank goodness for your site) and our Podiatrist cost a small fortune so the information helps first
    Thank you so much for all your advice

    A MRI might also be helpful to see if the joint is damaged, then it might be necessary to fuse it surgically. I am not sure how podiatry works in Australia. o they do surgery? If not, then an orthopedist would be the specialist to see.
