I broke my small metartarsal ie the one leading to the little toe, it is broken in three places and out of alignment but it was put in a cast anyway at the Univeristy college London. uk.
I went back yeaterday 5 week plus after the injury and now they have given me a David Beckham type boot to wear called aircast.
I was dismayed when I saw how little the bone seemed to have mended there was just a tiny amount of deposits of calcuim. the consultant did not spend much time with me and I am worried.
He said a further month in this boot.
I can put weight on it but also have crutches.
My question is, is it normal to hurt after so long and for the fracture to be healing so slowly.
I am 52 years old.Many thanks Manya Mcclew
