Broken 5th metatarsal. X rayed after three days. Pretty bad break. I was given a boot , no crutches. Returned to doctor after 4 weeks, he squeezed the foot and I had no pain in the area.No further x-ray. But ankle was a bit swollen, he said it was probably the boot so try to wean myself from wearing it this week ( week 5). I go back to see him in 4 weeks although he said if I feel everything is good I can cancel the appointment, I was a bit shocked at that. No mention of physio etc. I have walked indoors without it for a day and my ankle is so swollen. I am concerned the ankle has a small break.On leaving he said Going mad but realise it could be a lot worse. Anyone else have ankle problems, feel like going back to A&E.Any help would be good.
