I need some serious help. I broke my 5th metatarsal in 2 places in my right foot may 20th. It's now almost 4 months later and I still have not been able to walk. I re broke it a few weeks in which made the process start over. I lost my insurance in July and was not able to see a Dr again for a long while so I didn't know I was able to attempt to walk ahain. When I finally went in a couple weeks ago they said my bones and muscles were starting to desintigrate due to non use for so long. I was never put in a cast from the beginning so I can't even bend my foot, move my toes, and my leg has lost all muscle to it. I've been in physical therapy for a couple of weeks but I'm starting to feel like I'll never walk again and I'm getting pretty discouraged. I still barely have any movement in my ankle or toes and have extreme pain while trying to put any weight on my foot. Any advice or anything at all?
