    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.

    You seem to know all the medical I think you'll be fine after amputation!

    Have the surgery if that is the only way to fix it. I would not think that you would want to stay injured like this indefinitely or have to wear this particular type of shoe indefinitely. I would want to get it fixed so that I could resume the activities I previously enjoyed.
