...OMG just walked into bed..........
sticking out an angle......can't look at it

belgo Thu 21-Jun-07 08:16:57

If you think it's broken, go to A&E.

Hold a cold compress against your toe - a bag of frozen peas wrapped in a teatowel is good -

keep your foot elevated when possible, and don't walk on it!

talcy0 Thu 21-Jun-07 08:17:25

am very scared...they'll need to put it in correct position...carrying on as normal....packed lunch making etc...so as not to freak dds out

belgo Thu 21-Jun-07 08:18:27

don't be scared, they'll give you pain killers.

Is there someone who can help you? You really need to rest your foot and get to A&E

talcy0 Thu 21-Jun-07 08:19:00

dh on way home, belgo

friend taking dds to school...toe is sticking out at 2 0clock iykwim

NotQuiteCockney Thu 21-Jun-07 08:19:22

Which toe?

You do need to go to A+E so they can point it in the right direction and tape it. A broken toe isn't that big a deal, but it shouldn't be sticking out ...

WaynettaSlob Thu 21-Jun-07 08:19:24

Am wincing on your behalf........

Budababe Thu 21-Jun-07 08:19:43

Oh God - poor you. Can't believe you are managing to carry on as normal!

Agree you should get to A&E asap.

talcy0 Thu 21-Jun-07 08:21:26

next to my little toe right foot....am shaking...feel sick....just need dds to go to school

belgo Thu 21-Jun-07 08:22:19

sit down, put you feet up. Don't worry about the sandwiches. Just don't want you fainting!

talcy0 Thu 21-Jun-07 08:33:22

dh just got home...he say it dislocated

ouuuchhhh

belgo Thu 21-Jun-07 12:07:30

let us know how you are!

talcy0 Thu 21-Jun-07 12:57:15

[Grin]

just got back from A&E
Clean break....had to pull it back into position and strap it.

Bloody hurts now!!!

Thanx for keeping me calm

belgo Thu 21-Jun-07 16:07:58

I hope you're stocked up on painkillers! Take the maximum dose to keep on top of the pain. Keep your leg rested up elevated, but do move it gently to keep the blood circulation going.

Hope it gets better soon

lulumama Thu 21-Jun-07 16:08:59

oh sweetie !! it is very painful, isn;t it?? make sure you milk it for all you are worth

have broken toes several times......take it easy, get DH to nurture you !

talcy0 Thu 21-Jun-07 16:11:14

thanks belgo, thanks lulumama.

Feels such a fuss over a toe.....but it is very painful.

<<proudly....my first broken bone>>

weebleswobble Thu 21-Jun-07 16:12:38

What'd you go and do that for?? Breaking a toe! How hard did you have to whack it to break it - I'm thinking a couple of weeks off work would be good?

talcy0 Thu 21-Jun-07 16:16:09

sounds good weebles...

thanks to all...

dd2 stood on it when she got home from school....need big protective slippers

Budababe Fri 22-Jun-07 07:16:06
