Do fractures always show on Initial xray? Fell & hurt foot 1 wk ago. Doc said no fracture but I'm still in pain and can't walk.

Foot sprain: Inability to bear weight is expected in this kind of isolated trauma. Stress fractures occur in the context of extended athletics and are unusual in this age of child with this kind of mechanism. If the fall was not witnessed by an adult, then you can't be sure the child didn't hit his head, in which case vomiting is a concern. Call your pediatrician now to sort out next steps. ...Read more
