12 days ago I fell and sustained a fracture at the base of the 3rd metatarsal. Im feeling disgusted because im still on crutches and cant walk yet. Is it dangerous for me to attempt to walk if there is pain still? there is still swelling and bruising. i love to run and exercise and Im wondering how long before i will be able to run again, and if i will be able to run like i did before the fall. Am I at a normal stage of healing?
Did the doctor give you a walking cast or shoe? Yes, there may still be a bit of pain. Of course, a break has occured.
Puh-lease! When you do heal, take it easy. I had a hairline fx in my left foot in March '03. I could only waddle veeerrrry slowly with the cast. :chuckle
That is what happens when a nurse rushes! We get hurt.
