Non-union: Depends on the time of immobilization as to the determination of the non-union. Assuming you have been in the cast and boot for up to 12 weeks, this is possible. Next step is to see your doctor for re-evaluation and possible use of an electromagnetic bone growth stimulator. That is your next step. In the meantime back in the boot.
