I broke my 5th metatarsal, a Jones fracture. That, of course, took forever to heal since I am over 65 and I had to wear an Aircast walking boot for three months.
Now I am out of the walking boot for a little les than two months and my break and ankle sprain have both healed nicely. However, I am having problems for which I need advice.
I have a lot of pain across the top of my foot especially when I wear shoes and the front of my foot behind the toes hurts when I walk and cannot support weight as it could before. I cannot, for example, walk around on my tips as I could easily do before.
I am thinking I need an MRI to look for soft tissue injury but the doctor seems to feel my problems with pass after I have been out of the walking cast wonder. I am not convinced.
What do you think? How long has it taken others to stop limping after using an Aircast boot for three whole months? What about the pain? Is that normal after having to use an Aircast boot for that long?
