Re: Strange behavior of a stress fracture - best rehabilitation strategy

I am not sure that I agree with the "no pain no gain" theory. As I have already mentioned, there are many variables involved. If the foot is elevated higher than the heart, then swelling will decrease. If it is hanging and there is no activity, then it will swell. I am also not in agreement with your statement "of how much pain/swelling is normal and not normal in the process of training the bone,"

What you have been experiencing is certainly not the norm. You should discuss this with your doctor.

I am sorry I can't be more help.

You might try wearing support hose with a mild compression to help with the swelling.
