5th metatarsal not heeling
I have been seeing a podiatrist for my 5th metatarsal Avulsion Fracture.
I have been in the “boot” in conjunction with the “bone stimulator” for approx. 3 months.
There has been absolutely no progress to date and my Dr. has suggested surgery and also suggested that I get a second opinion.
Do you have any suggestions?
Should I be seeing an orthopedic doctor instead?
Any light that you can shed on this subject would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you for your time.
