Metatarsal

i broke my 1st and 2nd Metatarsals at work by having something drop on my foot. i had a cast on for 8 weeks.the doctor then x-rayed my foot again and said the 1st Metatarsal hasn’t healed properly yet and said he won’t put another cast on this time as it might bond better without one, and not to put all my weight on the injured foot. i’m now on my 12th week and still can’t walk. how long do these things usually take to heal?
thanks

  1. I can’t tell you a whole lot since I haven’t seen your x-rays. You might want to consider getting copies and getting another opinion.
