Re: Broken 5th Metatarsal - Broken From Underneath The Foot

Personally, speaking only for myself,I would want another x-ray. Most often I use a cam-type walker rather than a cast.

As far as prevention. I recommend you use a walker with or without wheels. See if you can borrow one from someone to try.

Osteoporosis is certainly an unfortunate side effect from having to take prednisone for your condition. The Fosamax is hopefully helping but is not enough to prevent your injuries.
