In brief: Definately
The nerves that supply the sensation to the toes come from the spine much like an electrical circuit.

In brief: Possible
It would depend at what level of the spine the fracture occurred, what damage it caused, how was it repaired.

In brief: Yes
It could result if the fracture resulted in a compression or inflammation of a nerve root, mainly at the l4-5 or l5-s1 level.
This could happen if a fracture of a facet occurred or if the pars is fractured and a spondylisthesis results. Even a displace L5 transverse process could result in these symptoms. You should see your pcp for referral to a spinal surgeon.

If the fractue ia in the lower spine it is possible. A MRI would help to diagnose your problem.
