Re: True Jones Fracture with failure to heal diagnosis

well i guess we both guessed wrong on this one, The surgeon thinks that it would be best for me to have the nonhealing portion of the bone removed and then "rewire" the tendon to the larger remaining fragment, and if it will not streatch that far then he will attatch it to the tendon that crosses the top of my foot. He thinks that with this i should be back walking in a week, and then just have to deal with a healing tendon and remove the bone pain that i have been having. I like the idea of not having the cronic pain in the foot from the two bones or the hardware, but the thought of rewiring my leg and the risk that is involved when you start messing with the calf is a little unnerving. i guess this is what is best for this injury though. thank you for the advice.

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.
