Default Broke my foot longboarding

So today i fractured my 5th metatarsal (long bone going to pinky toe) on my left foot. I was just cruising down a hill long boarding not even going that fast but the trucks were way to loose so everything was wobbling like crazy so i had to bail and i landed on my foot sideways. I was wondering how long it took you guys to recover because this is the must bullshit injury i have ever had and i want to get back to doing what I want as soon as possible. thanks.

Take it easy for six weeks and you'll be fine. My wife has literally broken every toe and some more than once. They heal quick. But seriously, ice and elevate your toe the next two weeks, a lot!

That is WAY different.

I have probably broken 5 toes, long and short bones..... They heel pretty quick but you HAVE to stay off it for a couple weeks so it can fuse......

I really hope i can be walking without a boot in a month and maybe get back to full strength in 2. does that sound realistic?

Had metatarsal n toes broken several times (damn young spooky 1300lbs horses). They heal quickly if you let 'em.

Thanks. with the icing and elevation is that for actual healing or just pain management because my foot isn't that swollen and it feels fine so do i still have to do that?

It's actually for reducing the swelling n pain. Have you done a X-ray? I assume it's a clean straight break, nothing shifted.?
Well possible that it's not badly swollen, my clean broken toes weren't as well (not a lot of tissue there), only hurt like a sprain. I put a good smear of Volarene unguent twice a day and a bandage to get bit of fixation as long as it huts and used it to the pain barrier (whatever that means )

Ice will help blood get to it for quicker healing. The more you do in the beginning to help it, the faster it will heal.

That's actually not correct... Ice is slowing the blood flow and as such constraing inflammation n swelling. Heat increases blood flow.
