I broke mine just over a year ago, before I'd started wearing VFFs. I didn't bother with the doctor--just taped it up. It was about 2 months till I could exercise on it again. And that's the toe that is hardest to get into the VFFs now...was painful when I first tried VFFs 6 months after the injury, and now just needs more coaxing than the others.
Oh, and you have my complete sympathy. I do fine with pain in general, but my toes seem to have 90% of my nerve endings in them, so it's excruciating when I injure one!
Zone diet on and off for several years....worked, but too much focus on exact meal composition
Primal since July 2010...skinniest I've ever been and the least stressed about food
