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
4-6 weeks: Most hairline fractures heal rather quickly. That said, some fractures seem to take their time and other still will not heal without some "help". Most toe fractures that are not displaced will heal uneventfully, and within 4-6 weeks.See 1 more doctor answer

I: I think it's time for a second opinion. You're incredibly young to have all this going on in your foot & ankle, and I would also get an MRI to see exactly where the tears and damage is. I would strongly discourage you from any "exploratory surgery" in an effort to "fix" what's wrong. I would get an accurate diagnosis first. I'm also concerned about those cortisone injections you were getting for a stress fracture. I've never heard of giving cortisone for a stress fracture. In fact, quite the contrary, steroids tend to delay healing of fractures, and they come with the risk of tendon rupture, which you apparently had. Please get a second opinion before proceeding any further. Preferably with either a foot & ankle orthopedist or a podiatrist certified in foot & ankle surgery by the american board of podiatric surgery. Good luck!See 5 more doctor answers

Pain & Swelling: The symptoms of a hairline/occult fracture include persistent pain, swelling and difficulty walking and standing on the ankle. These can also be small enough that they are not revealed on normal x-rays. If these persist longer than your doctor indicated for a sprain, additional testing such as an MRI or bone scan might need to be considered. Good luck.See 1 more doctor answer
