My question is I am 14 weeks post operative on a open reduction repair to the second metarsal. A pin was put into place, but after seeing the recent x-rays, the pin does not bring the fractured bones together. The facture can still be cleary be seen in the x-rays still, and I am still in pain. My question is . . . isn't the purpose of the pin is to help fuse the bones together and shouldn't my pain be minimal by now? Also I have not had any any Physical therapy either which I thought was very important in the recovery, Right? Thanks for any help and information regarding my foot is greatly appreciated. I don't not want to question the Dr. without some kind of feedback or input from others. So Thanks Again.
