Re: lisfranc fracture or sprain?

No I didn't. It was one of those discussions where despite my expressing my concerns, I left the appointment feeling misunderstood--as if I were catastrophizing; hoping for surgery or hoping for a worse injury than a "mere" sprain. I can leave him a message re the CT scan.

Should I ask for a referral to an orthopedist? I don't want to be disrespectful. And I certainly don't want to tell him that my concern is based on my internet research vs. his expertise.

I don't want the surgery if I won't be able to walk without pain (I'm 44) for the rest of my life. But everything I've read says don't under-treat or under-diagnose this injury and that late diagnosis can give a bad outcome too.

Lined with soft fabric on both sides, this ~2mm thick SiliposŪ proprietary gel pad is an excellent cushion to help relieve the burning sensation and discomfort of the five metatarsal heads of the foot (the ball-of-foot) by protecting the ball of foot from repeated friction and abrasion with the shoes.
