I am glad you went and no breakage! I hope you guys are celebrating appropriately.

Cholera is treatable and probably less painful than reseting a broken bone in a couple of weeks.
Uhhhhhhhh no DB ! You got Cholera ,you should have gone to the Doc right away Drink lots of fluids (you now what ) and eat a brat

you big girl's blouse - you are no going to complain about just a touch of cholera now. Struuuf.

So glad it turned out not to be a more serious lower phalanx break.

Was just about to comment that the Spartans would never let that happen. It's all in the discipline. How's the toe?

How's the toe?
It's feeling a bit claustrophobic, but it's behaving itself.

The real pain now is in the calf that has been doing all the work since Thursday evening.

Use a muzzle if he wants to bite.

Be careful with the calf, make sure to move your ankle as often as possible to avoid thrombosis. Those are nasty bits! I had to give shots to hubby for a while in his leg.... Quite fun when you want to make him suffer.... and he was on meds for 3 months, that wasn't fun.

NO NO, the one who has been doing all the work is female I believe and not called 'calf'.

Last time I heard of Massage Calf, she was in a Range Rover on a slip road on the A1 attending to her friend's "pancreatitis" (as she affectionately called it)

Re: Possible broken toe: worth hobbling to the doctor's?

Sorry, haven't read the whole thread, but I had the same problem a while ago, after whacking the toe against a kerb. Was convinced I must have broken it, it hurt so much.

I didn't go to the doctor but what did help enormously was pain-killers. I'm not sure why I didn't think to take any for a couple of days, but when I did, the pain subsided fairly quickly -- enough to feel able to go to work, unfortunately.

Just simple Ibuprofen. Because I so rarely take these things, they seem to do the job quite effectively when I do need them.

It took about 5-6 days for it to feel normal again.

Ibuprofen is great, inflamatory on top of being analgetic. And taking it very seldom definitely helps too, I wouldn't be able to be on it for more than 2 days since it kills my stomach after a while, but it really works. Other people swear by alternating ibuprofen with paracethamol.

The doctor gave me Olfen tablets and Olfen gel... although I must confess that I have abstained from them so far this evening so I could have a cold beer...

I'll start in the morning, though, I promise!
