For the toe, it is important that you restore normal flexibility and strength, though it is difficult to tell whether this is a problem for you. I had an open dislocation of this toe once, and the main problem was that after the skin healed, the toe kept getting stubbed because it did not behave in the manner I was used to.

Small Joint Training The doctor is right in practicality, if not in technicality. If you have a weight bearing bone, it can be thickened, if you have muscle that you have conscious control over, you can exercise and strengthen it.

This is pretty much a copy-paste from my answer on another similar question. It is very relevant for the OP here as well. How to be a fighter without being a murderer? You should not give this any concern in a real-life situation. You neutralize the attacker, and no more. If there are multiple attackers, you should be excessive on the first so that he ...

The best way to fight is always by "without fighting". Negotiate and talk your way through because your ultimate aim is not getting yourself (or your friends) hurt. If you have the option to run/escape, do so! Is it ok to break someone's arm (it won't kill him) if you are given the opportunity ? (Through a submission or something.). In the country ...
