5th Metatarsal Fracture
On September 3rd 2015 I broke the mid shaft part of my 5th Metatarsal.
By Sept 7 I had surgery, which consisted of Two wires and a pin driving through the ball of my foot to keep the fracture in place.
It has been nearly 8 weeks now and the pin is to be removed Nov. 4.
From what I’ve seen of the X-Rays, no union of the bone seems to have been made, then again I am not a Dr.
My Dr. seems confident that I will be walking in a week or two.
Is this sufficiant healing time and is it common for it to take this long?
2ndly what should I be warey of before I start to take my first steps again?
