A 52-year-old female asked:
4 aligned foot fractures (so no surgery). Doctor removed the fiberglass cast for the 3rd-week Xray, then prescribed the walking boot. Is it TOO EARLY?

Boots are great: In my experience, such fractures seem to have a good bond at 3 wks. Walking boots actually immobilize quite sufficiently. Just don't over do it, as healing is still occurring.
