 Re: Slow Healing 5th Metatarsal
Longlegs    7:03am Aug 1 2018

I had a long, three month struggle with a 5th metatarsal fracture. First hard shoe, then a short leg cast, then an aircast ( horribly uncomfortable) and with little progress they were about to do surgery. After reading some other posts I decided to ask for an over the knee bent leg cast that enabled me to keep my foot from touching the ground. It worked for me; doctor was dubious but full non weight bearing for 6 weeks did the trick. I chose the cast so that I would not be tempted to put any weight on it. Cast was surprisingly light and not nearly as hard to maneuver as I feared.
