Im pretty sure i broke my foot at the big toe joint. I don't have insurance so can I just wear an orthopedic boot i already have small amount of swelling
tingling in foot
extreme difficulty with weight bearing
no visible deformity or bruising
If : If you have no insurance (and no means to pay), you can still go to an er and have it x-rayed. This way, at least you'll know for certain whether it's broken, and also how badly. If it's a bad break that needs to be reduced (put back), i'm not sure the er will do that, and you might have to suck it up and go see someone or suffer the consequences of a non-union or malunion, which will haunt you for the rest of your life. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I broke my foot Aug. 27 (today is Oct. 3). I am wearing aircast boot. Bones not displaced . My last appt. with orthopedist was Sept. 19 and I was told to come back in six weeks if not better. When will pain start to lessen?

Call your doctor and hear it straight from the horses mouth. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
