Hi, Thank you for your question. Without seeing the x-ray it is difficult to comment whether you should go for surgery or not. If your pain level is severe and day to day walking is difficult than you should consider a surgeon's opinion. If your pain is not bothering in regular activity than you can consider orthotic insoles to offload the pressure from the toe. Post traumatic injury takes time to heel because of deep tissue injury and contusion. But before thinking of surgery you should consider Physiotherapy to improve the function and performance of your muscle and joint.
