I not only broke my left big toe, I shattered the bone length wise in several pieces when I slipped toe first off a carpeted step onto a tile floor. 200 pounds over 7" equals a heluva lot of force. That was in Dec 1986. I still have pain when the weather makes a big change quickly, occasionally it locks up - and woe to anyone that steps on it even now . The worst part, we had a 12" snowstorm, I still had to plow out my 800 foot drive, the office Xmas party was that day, which I did attend for a few minutes on the way to the e-room, then had to wait for hours while doctors fixed fingers of several folks who thought they could clear a snow blower blockage by hand. Crutches for 2 weeks plus I was working out of town.

So, with that said, Crash I hope you have a quicker and total recovery and didn't hurt your new hip
