 5th metatarsal transverse fracture — 3rd week!
Jas Ng    4:37am Nov 23 2018

Hi guys, I fractured my 5th metatarsal on the 5th or November while at work stepping down from an island and onto the road with my heels on. They weren’t even high heels! I normally wear higher booties. This has been the worst case of luck all year round. I had to get wheeled down from the 6th floor and into the elevator with an office chair. By the time I was downstairs, I was in tears. Must have been the worst pain I’ve endured.
Has anyone else here broken their 5th metatarsal?
This is my 18th day recovering. I have finally worked up the courage yesterday to put on a moon boot and walk slowly on my heel without crutches. Hooray!
Although on the 20th of November, I slipped in the rain and put pressure on my toes and thought I had moved a step back in the healing process. But all seems to be fine.
The past few weeks have been really depressing and I was just wondering if anyone can give me some peace of mind as I am constantly anxious about my fracture not healing :(
Also, is there anything I can do for strength in my right leg? (Broken foot) as my left seems so be super dominant and I don’t want to be in complete muscular atrophy!
Thanks in advance x
