I have a misdiagnosed fracture for sprained ankle on my cuboid bone for 2.5 months.It's 3.5 months & My foot start to get swollen much more. why?

Delayed Union: Many cuboid fractures are not initially seen on plain x-rays and their diagnosis can be delayed. Would recommend getting rechecked to evaluate healing (CT, MRI, and/or xray may be necessary). Also, would get your vit D level checked. Though rare with a cuboid fracture, swelling may also be a sign of a DVT. Get checked out. Good luck. ...Read more

Is it actually true that an aso ankle brace will provide enough support for fractured cuboid bone?

Is it actually true that an aso ankle brace will provide enough support for fractured cuboid bone?

Not enough: An aso ankle brace does well to immobilize the ankle, but the straps essentially end right at the cuboid, so very little stability is afforded to this bone.

If you have a cuboid fracture, a short air cast boot will be better. ...Read more

Will an aso ankle brace provide enough support for fractured cuboid bone or will something more be needed?

Will an aso ankle brace provide enough support for fractured cuboid bone or will something more be needed?

No: Not if it is my cuboid. It this is a recent fracture i would be in a cast boot with crutches until the fracture is stable.
With that said - does it hurt with walking with the aso brace? Is it anatomically aligned?

If you do not like the answer to these questions - dont walk on it without medical attentioni. ...Read more

Injured pinky toe 2 weeks ago now theres a small hard lump at end of metatarsal bone near or on top of cuboid bone. What could it be?

A couple things: Normally the styloid process at the base of the fifth metatatarsal is prominent, perhaps you just realized how prominent it is with all the attention to that side of the foot. Could have injured the metatarsal at the same time or could be one of the peroneal tendons inflamed. An xray would be of great benefit. ...Read more

Returning left foot pain, top/side of the foot, directly down from small toe about halfway. Cuboid? Calcaneous? Pretty sure not rolled ankle. Help

X-ray: Avulsion of the base of the 5th metatarsal at the insertion of the peroneus brevis muscle would be the most common cause. An ossicle at the same point could also be painfully arthritic. An x-ray will prove the Dx. Healing simply takes careful neglect over time. ...Read more

Pain in big toe mild swelling after falling down stairs. Difficulty walking (walking on side of foot). Pain wakes me and i think bone is displaced?

If you fell: Downstairs and have difficulty walking the foot likely should be xrayed. You also sound like at minimum should be walking in a surgical shoe that prevents the toe and metatatarsal joint from bending. Ice would do you well as well.

Good luck. ...Read more
