Just over two weeks ago i slipped on a pavement in spain resulting in a 5th metatarsal base fracture. I have currently my foot in a walker boot non weight bearing but occasionally i will apply pressure to see if it healing. I have a lump that looks like bone on the area of the fracture. Iv been told its swelling but this was two weeks ago. Does swelling last this long and feel like a bone? Im due back to work next week and am concerned about applying pressure on foot as i do not have an xray until three weeks time. I really do not want to be walking on it until i know its healing? Im due to see my docs this friday who has advised i rest my foot until then. What i want to know is whether i should start walking on it? Im concerned ill displace it if its not healing..
