Broke toe 1 1/2 yr ago and still giving trouble

Just wondering if anyone can advise whether doctors can actually do anything about below,

I stubbed my toe on a chair about a 1 1/2 yr ago and thought nothing of it. However it took about 6/8 weeks for it to feel normal again. I suspect I must have broken it. I didn't bother going to the doctors as I thought that they couldn't really do anything for broken toe bones and would just advise strapping it up. After it healed I realised I couldn't bend it back at all without it hurting.

I was pregnant at the time and kind of forgot about it. However I've just been swimming and it is really painful again. Can anything be done or have I got to live with it. Sorry for the essay!

go and get it checked... if it was broken it may have not been quite straight when it healed.
