I dropped something about 25-30 lbs on my big toe

Patient : I dropped something about 25-30 lbs on my big toe about two months ago and more than half the nail turned purple/black. The pain was very bad but has gone unless I push on the black spot. Its at the base where the nail meets the top of the toe and the skin above the nail is black too. About 75% of the nail is black. I'm just curious if I should get it looked at. The nail hasn't fallen off. I can add a picture if it would help.
