Swelling and pain...lots of it. I broke the 5th flange on my right foot years ago, worse experience of my life. Nothing will make you appreciate being in good physical shape more then walking with crutches for 6 months.

If it is a sprain, vibration won't hurt. Put your phone on the injured area, set it to vibrate, and then call it. If you scream like a :princess: it is broken

dang it, not fast enough :D

We built a huge metal sled and bolted a lazy boy to it. Though it would be a good idea to load six of us on it and run her down the hill. I tried to stop it with my foot and got sucked under. My foot looked exactly like that and yes it was broken.

Damn Eric, those are the ugliest pair of hands that I've ever seen. :flipoff2: :D

I broke three metatarsals in my right foot three years ago when the punching bag won during a flying scissor kick at practice. Didn't hurt much, but I did hear the pops. I drove home and had my wife massage what I thought was a sprained foot. :D
