I had 4 metatarsal head resection in jan. Now am getting callous on third metatarsal. Dr. Says bone regrowth. Is that possible?
Bone growth possible: Yes. I believe you are speaking of a callus beneath the 3rd metattarsal. Bone re-growth is possible after surgery. An x-ray should be taken to see the orientation of the lengths of mets 2 and 4, with respect to the 3rd. If the 3rd metatarsal is longer than the second, it will bear more weight causinf a callus beneath it. An accommodative orthotic can be fabricate to alleviate this problem. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Foot pain: Tamar fractures can occasionally be difficult to see, as can other fractures to bones in the foot/ankle. It sounds like you had a lot of fractures - the healing, along with having to change how you bear weight on that foot, may be the cause of your pain. I'd get the opinion of your orthopedic surgeon, as he/she may recommend additional imaging. ...Read more

Complex fractures can take much longer than average to heal, especially in the foot and especially if you are still bearing weight on your foot. New x rays could help with an updated diagnosis also. Smoking delays healing also. ...Read more
