5th Metatarsel Break

I stepped off a curb at work and broke my 5th metatarsel. The X-Rays showed where it was broken and shifted 1 centimeter. The orth. surgeon placed me in a boot and advised me to stay off completely. I go back in 2 weeks for more X-Rays. I have severe foot spasms and tingling in my foot now. Am I looking to have surgery before it is all said and done? Please help, I am very nervous

A layer of gel combined with a foot cover to help protect metatarsals and toes from friction and pressure. It also ideal for cushioning the ball of foot and provides warmth for people suffering from arthritis or poor circulation to the toes.
