Would you recommend surgery for avulsion fracture with sublaxation of 4th toe?


I kicked a chair late 01/12. Hairline fracture of distal phalanx. I felt distinct razor sharp discomfort in proximal mid phalanx between 02/12 and now going down stairs, at rest and minimal movement. I completely stopped hiking. I've modified yoga poses to protect toe. I Another xray a little over 4 mos after injury showed avulsion fx of prox part of midphalanx, capsulitis, and about 60% plantarward sublaxation of distal on mid phalanx. I'm using semi-rigid sandal w good arch support (comfortable). Should I not point my toes in yoga poses? Thank you, Doctor.
