Re: Concerned about healing of 5th metatarsal

Dr. Abrams,

Thank you for your response. My Dr. did not order an X-Ray. He simply evaluated my foot (physically) and asked what % improvement by way of pain. I stated 40%; he ordered another 3 wks of sedentary work; then another recheck. He did however mandate to do away w. post op shoe and instead resort to a rugged semi-stiff shoe that allowed for some flexion... such as the opposing Timberland boot I was wearing. I'm walking on it as tolerated; then resorting to crutches as needed.

Again, your response was greatly appreciated. Hopefully, the Dr.'s allowance of weight bearing will not hinder the healing process.
