I broke my 5th metatarsal on my right foot 2 days ago, I was put in a boot yesterday & now today I notice parts of my toes are bruised, is this normal?

I broke my 5th metatarsal on my right foot 2 days ago, I was put in a boot yesterday & now today I notice parts of my toes are bruised, is this normal?

Blood flows downhill: While the fracture was in the metatarsal, fluids (including blood) can track along tissue planes in the foot and produce bruise-like discoloration at other, remote spots. Gravity likely guided fluid as it seeped from the fracture site towards your toes. If there is pain as well as discoloration in your toes, then it's best to alert your physician as there may be more than the orig fracture. ...Read more
