Been doing some home improvement stuff the ,last few days…while cutting some wood last night on my table saw, the sled I use for cross-cutting dropped off the front (I’m an idiot) and landed right in my right big toe. 10-12 lbs straight down into the middle joint of the toe.
Doc says I have a “chip fracture”, buddy-taped it and put me in a walking shoe.
Debating going to see an ortho…not really much they can do for a broken toe.
I doubt I could even get my cycling shoe on at this point (narrow shoes) and even if I could, I’m sure it would hurt like hell. Planning in just icing the crap out of it for the next few days to get the swelling down (no NSAIDs for me, I’m on blood thinners).
Just curious if anyone has had similar injuries and what their return to riding looked like…
