Re: slow healing fractured 3rd toe left foot

Depending on the location of the fracture and degree of separation of the fragments, it may take much longer for healing to occur. The 6 week myth is just that. Patients assume that they are well then, without taking into account the numerous variables that can and do affect healing- age, health, activity level, location of fracture, degree of immobilization, etc

The foot always presents a difficult situation where people expect it to heal while continuing to use it. Gravity is your enemy also.

Now after all this encouragemnent, I recommend you hang in there. It should get better, just not as fast as you'd like.

Hope this helps.

The proprietary gel also provides extra protective padding to help comfort the pain caused by metatarsal soreness. May be used for relieving the burning sensation under the metatarsal heads, calluses and tarsal fat pads.
