I just got done my paintings for ebay for this week and so I went and took a shower and was going to go to the grocery store. I came downstairs (skipping every second stair as usual) and I slipped and landed on my butt on the stairs. This would have been not too bad but my right foot was under me and it got bent backwards and was under me as I slip down the last few steps. I don't even want to think of the angle it must have been bent back at :-(<br><br><br><br>
Anyway, looks like I won't be walking anywhere for a few days (at least)... I just hope my big toe isn't broken ( I can squeeze the actual toe without pain but the joint to the foot hurts (as does a lot else).<br><br><br><br>
I've been putting ice in a bag wrapped in a towel on it and lying on the floor with it raised on the couch so that helps.<br><br><br><br><br><br>
That was probably the most painful thing I've felt in years (probably since I sprained my ankle like 14 years ago playing basketball outside)<br><br><br><br><br><br>
Anyway, just wondering if anyone has any advice ... should I see a doctor soon?

Please take the time to see a doctor. If you have broken something, putting pressure on it before it's healed could cause it to heal funny. Then a doctor may have to re-break it. It's easier just to see a doctor now. Good luck.

I hope by now you've already seen a doctor... if not, <i>please</i> go. You don't want to find out it needed to be set after it already healed funky... painful stuff there. And if it <i>is</i> okay, you'll at least have the peace of mind of knowing that for sure. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br>
