Re: 12 y/o w/ Broken 5th Metatarsal

After 6 weeks,assuming the fracture is healing within normal limits and there is sufficient bone callus developing, I would let him start swimming and cycling to build up strength. Since I can not see your son or his X rays, my comments are at best, speculation. Your doctor is your best judge of when he is ready.
