I broke my toe.
A middle toe.
No one ever breaks a middle toe unless they were doing something stupid that they’d rather not talk about. So don’t ask.
After a week of pain I agreed with my son and my primary care physician and went to Urgent Care. There they x-rayed it and found a hairline fracture. However there is no treatment for a broken toe unless it is sticking straight up or something.
“It will be painful for the next three or four weeks,” the Urgent Care doctor said. “Just take it easy on the toe.” (Now there’s an idea.) (Med school was a real challenge, I’ll bet.)
Why, we have to wonder, do they x-ray it when there is no way to treat it?
Ah, the wonders of modern medicine.
I did get a prescription for Vicodin though. …Vicodin rocks.
