Swelling and pain from metatarsal stress fracture- how long should it last with non-weight bearing in boot and crutches?
To stress a point.: No method can predict exactly how long it will take a stress fracture to heal, under any conditions. Having said that, when you remove or substantially reduce the very stress that over powered the speed of your bone's ability to heal, then the fracture can repair itself. The accepted time frame is between 6-12 weeks or when all signs of fracture are gone. Non and limited weight bearing is best. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

However, for a minimally displaced low impact fibula, it may be possible to bear weight in a walking boot earlier than 6 weeks, likely around 4 weeks after the break depending on how the x-rays look. The bottom line is check with your provider and trust their expertise. ...Read more
