Re: broken metatarsels

Liz, Sorry to hear about your broken foot. I broke two metatarsel bones in my right foot last October, so almost a year ago. I had a cast and crutches for a few weeks, then a boot and crutches for a few more weeks. I never had surgery but probably should have. Like you I wanted to know when I could return to normal. I am 54 years old and for 20 years or so I have been a walker. I had walked two miles that morning before I fell later in the day and did the damage. Now almost a year later the metatarsals heads on that foot get so sore if I walk on them much at all. I have had to join a fitness club to get exercise because if I try to walk it gets painful. I hope your's will heal better than mine have. I am thinking now that maybe I should go to a podiartrist. I don't knwo what can be done now. Any advise from anyone?

The proprietary gel also provides extra protective padding to help comfort the pain caused by metatarsal soreness. May be used for relieving the burning sensation under the metatarsal heads, calluses and tarsal fat pads.
