Well yesterday i was playing soccer and i think i broke my toe.  Its the toe next to the little one.  I have plans to go skiing in 2 days should i cancel or is it fine?

Put your boots on.  Move around a little.  Apply some pressure to the balls of your feet and your heels.  How did it feel?  That should answer your question.  I've played soccer with broken toes before, at least with skiing you've got a hard shell to protect it.

The first time I broke a big toe, I was very careful to not use it too much so it would heal right.  I was quite surprised at how much I was limping just because of a toe being broken.

 

The second time a broke a big toe, I was a little less careful and it healed up just as well.

 

The last time I broke a big toe, I just ignored it and carried on all regular activities and it healed up fine (even got 2nd place at a karate tournament in my belt division  the next day biggrin.gif).

 

I would go ski.

Ski with it if it doesn't bother you too much. I skied with the same toe broken and the boot was actually like a walking cast and it felt better in the boot than out. I am not a doctor but make sure you apres ski immediately when done. Just mo .02

As others have said, try it and see.  The very first time I went skiing, just before I left I was playing basketball and someone fell on my foot while I was knocked to the ground.  The two toes next to the big toe were dislocated (they were at least at a right angle, straight up, to the rest of the toe if not further back ... I overheard the ER doc call an ortho for a consult and she said it was the worst dislocations she had ever seen) and broken.  I don't recall any major pain or problems.

Can't believe I forgot this part.  Booze are a must afterwards.  ;-)
