Re: weight bearing on broken foot

: About 11 weeks ago, I broke the second, third, and fourth metatarsal bones in my left foot. I have seen 2 doctors about this injury: an orthopaedic surgeon, and a podiatrist. I am currently in a walking boot. These 2 doctors have very differing opinions. The podiatrist thinks I should still be on crutches. The orthopaedic surgeon thinks that weight bearing induces healing, and that I should be placing weight on my broken foot and should even be starting to wear stiff-soled shoes. Who do you think is right?
: Thanks for any advice.
