I broke my first metatarsal on my left foot 3 days agos Wave sailing.
It’s a clean break, half way down the bone.
I am a fit 34 year old male.On getting out of hospital I relized i was told very little of what to expect in recovering. When can i walk, when will i be able to sail. Any tips for a fast recovery. Lastly it was not put in plaster is this alright ?
I hope someone can help

  2. By all means see your doctor or one who is recommended. Bring your X rays from the hospital. The doctor will be able to give you much more specific answers. Do not necessarily believe that adage that it takes 6 weeks to heal. That is often timmes not the complete picture.Until then, I would suggest you remain non weight bearing on crutches until you know more.Good luck
