5th metatarsal fracture

Hello Doctor,

I have fractured my right leg's 5th metatarsal bone exactly 6 weeks back. Doctor in India has put me a crepe Cast bandage and adviced me for restricted walking only.

But, I did not fully heeded to his advice and kept walking like normally with the cast boot.
Now, I do not have much pain, still some sensation is there around the fractured area.

Pls. advice me, how fast can it heal or do you advice me to proceed about it.( Should I get the CAST removed or go for fresh X-ray???)

The Active Ankle offers flexibility and security. It will feel different from anything you have ever worn for ankle protection. The hinge allows freedom of motion that you may not be accustomed to. Do not mistake this freedom of movement for lack of support. A leading university said, the Active Ankle provides more support (inversion) than the leading air-stirrup brace, the leading lace-up brace, or a tape job.
