Almost 8 weeks ago a car ran over my left foot leaving me with three fractures including first metatarsal, toe and one between toe and first finger. First four weeks I was in an open cast and the last three weeks in a foot fracture shoe. Now the surgeon is recommending I go for physiotherapy three times a week. But on the days I exert myself going to work I come home with a swollen foot and pain. I feel pain especially in the front end of my foot where I feel something is pulling very tight with weight. I explained this to my surgeon but he assured me that all my fractures have healed and that my recovery has been slow. He took my weightbearing x-rays as i cried. He has advised me to wear running shoes and go for physiotherapy and not be afraid. He told me i could throw away my crutches and wheelcahir which I use to go to work. Any suggestions. I am concerned about going to physio despite swelling and pain in foot which usually recedes after 24 hours of rest.
