5 broken metatarsal bones
My hsuband broke all5 metatarsal bones on 5/14/06.Since then, he has been in a compession cast, then a fiberglass cast, and surgery on the 1st? metatarsal bone (the big toe). After surgery he had another type of cast,like a splint with ace bandages.
Now he is in a fiberglass cast for another 3 weeks.
Then finally a walking cast.
His foot still swells when he has it down for a while.
He has broken many bones in his life, but this one has been a slow process. Is this normal? Thanks so much, Denise
