Don’t worry. A few years back I had a quarterhorse stand (with all his weight) on my right foot. I was in a splint & on crutches for 6 months.

Didn’t break a thing, but I had massive soft tissue damage, hematomas and crushed veins. It would have been easier if I had broken my foot.

Best wishes and speedy recovery to you.

I know this is easier said than done, but please go to and Urgent care or ED today, as soon as you can. If you are unable to walk on it, it is more than worth it to get it checked out. Is the foot also swollen or bruised? Swelling is very damaging to tissue, and I’m sure you do not want it to get any worse. It’s possible it could heal by itself, but it is also very possible it could be something that needs treatment.

@langloiswedding2013:  I am not a doctor, but I would really suggest you get your foot looked at ASAP. There could be something really wrong there – and if you avoid it, and it gets worse, the results could be much, much worse than if you’d just addressed it earlier.

In terms of medical care, avoidance is almost always a recipe for disaster. Deal with it now, heal properly and get on with your life! Good luck.

@langloiswedding2013:  go to the dr! If you keep walking in it they may have to re-  break it which will be a longer recovery. If you go ASAP you’ll be fine by your wedding.

@langloiswedding2013:  Horses… My mom is also an accident prone horse person also. She broke two ribs when a horse drug her under a semi truck trailer, 4 bones in her foot when a different horse stomped on it, 6 bones in her back when she bailed the first time she tried galloping, and three bones in her left hand when she got kicked into a water tank in the pasture. I told her she needs to start upping her calcium intake but shes my mother and therefore listens to nothing I have to say.

Anyhow. Go to the doctor! Or isn’t there an EMT on site that you can sit down with?

I didn’t have any swelling at first, either. Then my foot swelled to the size of a watermelon and I lost sight of my ankle. I’d vote safety over pride and go to the doctor. Why suffer?

It might not be broken but if you don’t get it looked at like NOW then you can bet it will be broken soon enough if you put any weight on it.

Go to UCC

Just my 2 cents, but I did very much the same thing a few years ago (rolled my ankle/foot) and there was little to no swelling after it but it hurt like hell.  My foot started to bruise REALLY badly and the bruising became fresh (like I kept bruising it every day) in the two weeks I walked on it (even spent a day in heels).  It turned out that the roll caused a small fracture at one part of my foot that is connected to a tendon.  As I walked on it each day for two weeks, the tendon started to pull the fracture apart and make it MUCH worse.  I was in a cast and a boot for almost 6 months (it caused tissue damage while the bone pulled apart).  

Long story short, my recovery time would have been 1/3 of what it was and FAR less painful physical therapy if I had just gone to the doctor after I rolled it.

I hope it is better for you!
