Hi everyone, hope i can get some answers and info from other peoples opinion. Beginning of june, first week, i had fractured my 5th metatarsal bone in left foot. Doctors put me in a tall boot and i have crutches. He told me at my first appointment i had 2 choices, either i can get sugary and get screws put in my foot or i can wait it out to see if it will heal on its own since it was lined up pretty good. Well i went back a week ago and still nothing and he dont want me to put any weight on foot. Its been 8 weeks probably yesterday, and still not any weight bearing on it. I thought and hope to of heard good news on my last visit because the swelling seem to of start getting better and was actually able to see arch in my foot again, and some of the discoloration was looking a little better. So anyways he said he was going to schedule me back in 3 weeks, so that will be aug. 13th i believe lol and i dont know if i should go ahead and get sugary set up or wait and see what happens at next visit. Im so ready to get this over with, considering i have 3 kids and my hubby out of town working a lot. Im wondering if i should try to put little weight on it, since ive seen other people say its supposed to help heal the bone better, but the doctor also said something about a blood vessel in foot and if i move my left foot toes to the right and may bust it. So i dont know what to really do and im looking for some info and help from others on my decision. I really was hoping not to get sugary and get a screw put into foot (sounds painful) . Any help and advise would be greatly appreciated. TIA, juls
