12 Weeks and 5th Metatarsal still not healed.
I sustained a displaced 5th metatarsal fracture on July 5.
It was in a walking cast for 7 weeks and have been in a post-op shoe ever since.
I began taking calcium supplements about 2 weeks ago but I can tell that my foot is still fractured.
I return to see the orthopedist in about a week and was hopeful that I would get released at that time.
Is this unusual?
I’m not a smoker or diabetic.
Is there anything I can do to help speed up the healig?
