I broke my 5th metatarsal bone about a month and a half ago. 8 or 9 days after I went to the hospital and they gave me crutches and a open toe boot , I went to a orthopedic doctor (this point it hurt when i just touched my foot down to the ground) and got a few xrays done , he told me I didn't need surgery .. That I didn't need a hard cast to just wear the boot and stuff, that I need to start putting pressure on it to losen the muscles or what not to make it hurt less. After that I started to try regardless of pain and day after that I was down to one crutch not applying full pressure to my broken foot. (And been down to one crutch since then)
But I've encountered a problem or two
1 - its been almost 2 weeks now since I've been walking bare foot and only feel my heal bones touching the ground causing discomfort , is this normal?
2 - i still feel the bone out of place almost two months later as if its not healing
ANY ANSWERS PLEASE ?
