Re: 5th metatarsal break

: i fractured my 5th metatarsal bone 3 weeks ago and i am still in at lot of pain. I can not totally weight bear yet. How long does it usually take. I am anxious to get back to work, but i don't feel that i can until it is completely healed due to the fact that i am on my feet for the entire eight hours that i work. Please let me know how long it usually takes before someone can totally weight bear with a fractured 5th metatarsal bone. thanks lori

Malleoloc for lateral ankle instability. Designed to prevent inversion and eversion. Malleoloc does not restrict plantar and dorsiflexion. Excellent for sports use.
