Re: Hi, I'm new here - Question/Statement about broken foot

Oh thanks. That's good to know. I definitely don't want any clots, etc. When will this pain go away? This is my first broken bone, so I'm not very clear on how long it will take for this to get better. I will be doing 6 weeks of PT, so hopefully that will give me some relief. But meanwhile, I'm just having to bite the bullet and suffer through the pain, as my doctor feels that I shouldn't have any pain at all anymore since I'm in a cast. Any thoughts on this. Is it normal for me to still be in this much pain and is it normal for my physician to refuse me pain medication since she feels like I should no longer be in pain. Thanks in advance for your advice.
