I thought I sprained the top of my foot a month ago after my foot rolled walking over some stones. Ironically I saw my primary doctor a few days later for my yearly check-up & I had her check my foot & I suggested an x-ray since I was there. No x-ray taken & said it was a sprain. I continued to ice it down & lay low & it got better until I walked about a mile or did a lot of standing it got worse. I then went to a Podiatrist & had an x-ray. The doctor said I fractured 2 bones mid foot side and gave me 2 options. Try the boot for a month to see if it mends the bones or have surgery. I chose to wear the boot & now after a week of wearing it I'm thinking of having the surgery sooner because I'll have lost those 3 weeks if the boot doesn't mend the bones. My question is what is the success rate of the wearing the boot first for 4 weeks without the surgery? Thanks!
