Re: broken first metatarsal, how long to fix

By all means see your doctor or one who is recommended. Bring your X rays from the hospital. The doctor will be able to give you much more specific answers. Do not necessarily believe that adage that it takes 6 weeks to heal. That is often timmes not the complete picture.
Until then, I would suggest you remain non weight bearing on crutches until you know more.

Good luck
