Hi Guys, Just wondered if there is anyone out there that has fractured there fifth metartarsal and would like to share the recovery process. I have as clean break on the head on the bone. Put in a cast but could not stand that, so got a aircast boot (not allowed to put any weight on it. It has been 3 weeks now and I still get swelling when the boot is on and it goes down when I take it off, weird. Little pain near the break site.Thanks.
