I have a Lisfranc fracture of the 5th metatarsal. Break was 6 weeks ago.
I have been walking with a boot. At my 5 1/2 week appointment with the orthopedist I was told to start weaning out of the boot and begin exercising.
The ortho did not give me any more specifics than that.
I have found exercises on the internet and have walked for 15 minutes on the treadmill at a slow rate.
I am only without the boot in my home because of my fear of being outside without the protection of the boot.
My foot burns at the site of the break during ankle rotation.
When I walk, with each step my foot feels a pinch, or catch.
Have I started too early with rehab or am I doing too much rehab too early? Does it always hurt this bad?
