My doctor told me to take it easy for at least two weeks after he cut and tried to rinse the intected tip of my right big toe. To me taking it easy is relative, I took it easy at home for a few days then went up to the mountains to jump again.No better way of healing than getting some exercise. Just took care to keep the wound clean not damage the toe more. And I got to do lots of flying, very nice - just check out the pic. And the good thing is that it is healing! Guess it will take some time to get my nail back, but I can even start doing yoga now:-)
