I think I broke a toe yesterday when my foot banged into the foot of the bed. I broke one a couple of years ago. This time only the toe is red and black and swollen (last time the whole top of my foot was bruised). It does not hurt if I don't move it or stand on it LOL. In fact, I can wiggle all the toes and it just gives a twinge, but if I put any weight on it, then it really complains.
So... how long does it take for a broken toe to heal? It is the toe next to the pinky. I like to jog and I am signed up for two 5K fun runs in April. Will a broken toe keep me out of the races? What kind of exercising can I do that will not slow down the healing but keep me from losing ground in my journey to fitness? I'm 57 and about 130 pounds.
Thanks for any advice!
