Healing Broken Toe Bones And Using A Cast?
I stumbled a few days ago until my middle toe was broken and then the cast was given without surgery. how long will it take to heal until my feet are completely healed? thank you :))
Hello Naflah! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Middle toes consists of 3 small bones. These bones are fragile and can break when we stumble or fall over something. Broken toe bones usually don't need surgery. Usually, swelling and pain begin to subside within a week. The healing process depends on the severity of the injury. In general, toe bones begin to recover within 6 weeks. However, this time can be longer if the fracture is severe enough or complications occur in the healing process. In the early weeks, you should rest enough to stop all physical activity that makes you feel pain. Try to keep your broken leg not moving at all. You can lift your legs higher (for example by propping up pillows under your feet) to reduce the swelling that occurs. Take the medicine given by the doctor who treats you according to the instructions given. Come for control to the doctor in accordance with the promised time. If the pain or swelling worsens, there is fever, bleeding, or you experience numbness in the toe, see your doctor immediately without waiting for the control schedule.
That's all information from me. Hope it helps and hopefully recover soon.
