If you do not like the answer to these questions - don't walk on it without medical attentioni. ...Read more
I have a displaced fracture of my cuboid bone. Main fragment is 1.4 cm in diameter. Is surgery absolutely necessary?

Many problems: The fact that 3 muscles attach to the fifth metatarsal (the peroneals) and that the fracture is displaced can cause an imbalance in these muscles and a non-healing fracture of that metatarsal. The peroneus longus passes under the cuboid- this muscle stabilizes the inner foot in gait and this crush fracture can cause problems with walking-- you should see your podiatrist for reconstruction. ...Read more

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
What are the pros and cons of late surgery (5 weeks since accident) on the talus bone? 3 other fractures in the foot (cuboid and 2 metatarsals).

Injured pinky toe 2 weeks ago now there's 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
