Re: Jones Fracture-base 5th metatarsal

It is difficult for me to give you exact advice without an examination.
A Jones fracture unfortunately has a high rate of failure to heal. I certainly would get another opinion and soon. I would request copies of the original x-rays. Until you have more information, I suggest you remain non-weightbearing on crutches.

Good luck.
