5th Metatarsal Base Fracture Swelling Pain At 7 Weeks
5th metatarsal avulsion fracture at base 2 weeks ago. Sharp pains in ankle& back of calf. Burning sensation at times on top of foot. Is this normal?
A fracture is a broken bone. As there is cartilage at the end of many bones at the joint, a fracture may also include a break in the cartilage. Fractures and broken bones are the same thing. It seems that many believe that a "fracture" is a lesser injury or an incomplete break in the bone, but this is not correct. Fractures may be displaced or ...Read more

Stress fracture-3rd metatarsal- slow to heal, 14 weeks, boot and crutches. X-rays - no healing since Week 7. Cast? Specialist? Still pain, swelling.
You should be: Seeing a foot doctor whether podiatrist or orthopedic foot and ankle doc. Are you a smoker? Do you happen to know if you have vitamin D deficiency? Have you been exercising or wearing normal shoes during the healing process? At 14 weeks that certainly is delayed healing and you need to discuss a plan with the dr taking care of you. Perhaps a bone stimulator would be in order.... ...Read more

I'm still experiencing pain,tingling,pins & needles & burning from a 5th metatarsal spiral fracture 4mths from injury date. Pain in ankle + fibula als?
Delayed healing.: All your symptoms are subjective in nature. I think knowing objective symptoms such as swelling, angular deformity or discoloring might contribute to understand just what the problem is. Fifth metatarsal fractures are not the easiest to heal even under perfect circumstances. Radio-graphic evaluation might be needed to see if there is a delayed healing of the bone or just a post fracture neuritis. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Displaced fracture of 5th phalanx of foot 4 weeks ago The toe is black, dull pain feels heavy, detached & numb. Skin feels blister like with fluid.
You should see a dr: When you say black..what color are you? Is it black like black and blue? Is there a capillary return in the toe?

Usually, when relocated it snaps back into place immediately and then should be protected from re dislocating...,see a foot doc ...Read more

Cast is for 6 week?
Scaphoid fractures: Can take longer than 6 weeks to heal. The cast, if that is the treatment used, can be discontinued only when there is certainty as to the healing. This can take 8 weeks or more and must be verified by new xrays but a times one needs to check healing with advancd studies such as CT scan. A partially healed scaphoid can lead to other problems, non union, pain re injury so patience is important ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Suffered displaced phalanx fracture 4 weeks ago. 5th toe is bluish black, feels detached & spongy. There is dull pain & unable to put last 2 toes down?
Stabilize.: Toe fractures can range from simple , straight forward to those of more severity. The recovery process, as you would expect, will vary depending on the severity and treatment. Your inability to pit your last two toes down, seems to signify that there is still some residual swelling. This is not too unexpected if the toe is unstable. This could best be remedied by taping the last two toes together. ...Read more
Is it broken or fractured is a question I am often asked. The answer is basically that a broken or fractured bone is the same thing. A fracture means a break in the cortex or the strong layer of outer bone cells. In an adult the average time for that to heal varies greatly but is often considered to ...Read more
Swelling is the enlargement of organs, skin, or other body parts. It is caused by a buildup of fluid in the tissues. The extra fluid can lead to a rapid increase in weight over a short period of time (days to weeks). Swelling can occur all over the body (generalized) or only in one part ...Read more
