A 36-year-old member asked:
Stress fracture pain hasn't gone away after two weeks?

Too soon...: Your body is just beginning to heal the fracture at this time. Normally the fracture site is stable after 5-6 weeks, but then more bone will be laid down and then remodeled at the fracture site. Be patient, it's going to take a while.
