Can you fracture a bone in your hip/legs/feet and still walk on it?

Depends on location. It depends on the type and location of the fracture. Fractures usually need to be immobilized with a splint, cast, or rigid walking boot depending on the location of the injury. For a broken toe you may get by with walking with a rigid surgical shoe. Have you physician determine which course of treatment is best for you.
Yes. Many fractures in the lower extremity can cause pain, yet still allow you to walk. I you have had trauma and are concerned, you should consult your primary care physician or orthopaedist.

Foot sore on top at "bend" between leg. Deep, dull pain close to ankle bone. No bruising/swelling. X-ray show no fractures. Able to walk, hop, etc?

Possibly impingement. The anterior ankle joint may become painful when the foot is excessively dorsiflexed during activity. The soft tissue or joint capsule becomes "pinched" between the tibia (leg) and the talus(foot) causing pain. X-rays will show no fracture due to only soft tissue involvement. Typically minimal swelling or bruising. Read more...

For the past few months I can't walk on the heel of my left foot it feels like glass. I am worried. I am in the late 50s and the drs saw no broken bones one murmered bone chips

The . The single most common cause of heel pain is plantar fasciitis, an inflammation of a ligament that begins in the heel. But the typical scenario of plantar fasciitis is that it starts slowly, with good days, then bad days, then good days again, with the patient usually describing the pain as worst after rest, like that first step in the morning getting out of bed. It usually takes months before patients seek medical help for plantar fasciitis. If you can't even bear weight on your heel, i wonder if you have a stress fracture of your heel bone. X-rays hardly ever show such small little fractures, but the pain can be intense. I would suggest an mri, with 3 mm cuts (narrower than usual in order to pick up a tiny break). Stress fractures of the heel bone can be very frustrating for both doctor and patient. Assuming no other underlying medical problems that would cause heel pain (and there are a number of them), getting an MRI would be my best suggestion at this point. I hope you feel better. Good luck!

Bone scan result. If bone scan did not show abnormal uptake then the cause of pain is usually not bone.Soft tissue abnormalities such as tendonitis, ganglion cysts, or myositis do not show up on bone scan. Soft tissue abnormalities can be better defined in certain hands by ultrasound and in others by magnetic resonance imaging. If conservative treatment shows improvement, than additional tests not usually necessary. Read more...
