 Re: 5th metatarsal transverse fracture 3rd week!
Allessandra    1:25pm Nov 24 2018

I broke mine and had a miserable time getting it to heal. First doctor had me wear a wood sole shoe; pain got worse; then two weeks later we tried a boot; no real progress after a couple more weeks. Changed doctor and he gave me the choice of surgery or non weight bearing cast. The cast was bent so my foot could not touch the floor and after six weeks in plaster and on crutches I progressed to full weight bearing in a boot for three weeks. Finally healed without surgery. Good luck.

Broken fib and tib
Full leg plaster cast 9/3/18
