Re: Fractured 5th metatarsel

: My 13 year old son fractured his fifth metatarsel
: on his left foot playing basketball. He plays a lot
: of different sports and is in good physical shape.
: They have him wearing a walking cast now and in two
: weeks we go for a checkup, including x-rays, to see
: how things are progressing. My questions are, how
: long is the recovery period, 6-8 weeks? Secondly,
: is there anything we can do to speed up the process?
: Thirdly, is there any chance that he will heal faster
: because of his age?
