Fifth Metartarsal Break

I broke my Fifth metartarsal on the 07 and had a cast on for 5 weeks. It is now the 26 I can still not run without a sharp stabbing pain occuring on the outside of my foot. It is now around 11 weeks since I broke the bone how long will it take to heal???

    Had you don’t therapy??if you haven’t you might want to, the muscles in your foot, are weak in areas you might not notice without muscle support your putting weight on a new bone. That might set you up for a break again. I broke my fifth as well, 8 weeks in a cast one month in a cami-walker, and then a month of therapy until I can run again…..11 weeks, if you came off a cast in five n walked, isn’t healed
