I had a stress fracture, 3rd meta. bone in my foot. It happened the last wk of October. The original X-ray showed no fracture, so I wrapped my foot with bandage. 6 weeks later still swelled (was going to chiropractor during this time. Went to a podiatrist & this X-ray was...well there could've been a stress fracture. I was in a walking cast 3 months... In January doctor found the crack. Stayed in walking cast from just before Christmas until mid March, 3 months. Went through therapy for 8 wks... After getting out of boot, foot swelled, so kept it wrapped in bandage. Compression bandage, it rubbed my ankle. I got a couple shots to take swelling down but it came back.
now the doctor released me...told me not to wrap. It's as swelled as much as it did originally. I know some swelling, but not as bad as it was when I first broke it?
Is is this normally, 8 months after the original injury. It seems if I walk more it's better. I'm trying the therapy exercises, helps a little.
