Jones Fracture Recovery Question

Hi Dr. Abrams,

I am now allowed to walk in my post-op flat shoe with full weight bearing now that my Jones Fracture has healed up significantly. I was wondering if I should experience soreness in my foot and ankle since it has been so long without full weight bearing? Today my foot is really sore, but it doesn't really hurt....and the funny thing is it is sore everywhere except where I fractured my fifth metatarsal. Is this common.

Also, my doctor told me to keep using my bone stimulator even after he fully releases me to participate in sports again. Is he doing this to make sure I don't refracture it?

Thanks for your time as always.

Best Regards,
