I broke my fifth metatarsel whilst on holiday in Norfolk nearly eight weeks ago. Was put in boot and as I was going abroad after five weeks, was told that I could take it off at five weeks. Had holiday abroad and walking was not too bad not much pain. However it would sell quite a bit. After six weeks had X-ray once home and showed it was still broken! Told tovgovto doctors for his decision but to put boot back on. Week after went to doc and surprise surprise, x ray not back! The hospital is only a five minute drive. Anyway doctor told me he would chase it up and get in touch. Nearly another week has passed and nothing. So still using boot when I go out, but not indoors. Very little pain but still swells after been on it. Just worried I may be prolonging healing by not wearing boot but it's so cumbersome round the house. And can't drive either. How long does it take to heal? And more importantly, how long des it take for an X-ray to get from A to B! Two weeks on, imy X-ray must be out f date now. Rant over
