Fractured 5th metatarsel
My 13 year old son fractured his fifth metatarselon his left foot playing basketball.
He plays a lotof different sports and is in good physical shape.
They have him wearing a walking cast now and in twoweeks we go for a checkup, including x-rays, to seehow things are progressing.
My questions are, howlong is the recovery period, 6-8 weeks?
Secondly,is there anything we can do to speed up the process?
Thirdly, is there any chance that he will heal fasterbecause of his age?
