Re: bone growth stimulator likely to work?

I broke the 5th metatarsal on the right foot over the labor day weekend (9/3/05). After several months, my doctor has ordered a bone growth stimulator. The break is diagonal, and has started healing but is still non-union.

I am a 47 year old smoker (6-10 cigarettes per day). How long do you think it will take for my foot to heal completely?

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.
