Broken 5th Metatarsal
I broke my fifth metarsal on my left foot about 3 weeks ago and during the first and second week I would always wear my removable cast. I went for a checkup and the doctor said that it was healing well and it was aligned properly . During this week I started walking on it without the cast, I realized that it was painless. Should I be wearing the cast at all times during movement or can I take it off while walking at this stage, although the doctor says I should keep the cast on?A response to this question would be greatly appreciated via e-mail.
