Our expert says:
It sounds as if your toe/foot is going to be okay. You have possibly damaged a soft tissue structure such as a ligament or tendon which will take a while to heal but should be fine.
More importantly; there is an increased risk of DVT with bruising/inflammation of the foot. You can offset this by wearing a compression stocking, available from pharmacies. Also, you should move your feet and toes regularly during the flight so no sleeping. I suggest getting an anti-coagulant from your doctor, you can also try aspirin. Try to get an aisle seat so you can move around regulary.
