Broken toe?

For some reason people seem to think broken toes are hilarious - they are not!
I broke every toe on my left foot back in University days - silly story. Actually I did NOT break my big toe- just the other 4. Problem is - there isn't really anything they can do for you! After the X-rays, they came back in and said (something to effect of) "Congratulations, stupid! 4 at once!" , and gave me some painkillers.

Here is what ya gotta watch out for: After a couple of weeks, they are well on the way to healing and they stop hurting and that's when you actually DO get stupid. I re-broke 'em several times - tripped on a curb (OUCH!) Start over with the healing, About 3 weeks later, I tried to get something off a top shelf - stood on tiptoe. Felt mucho pain accompanied by the crunch sound of biting into celery. Start over with the healing. (etc) It was actually about 4 months before they were fully healed.
