I broke my 5th met. on my left foot in the beginning of March playing soccer. Turns out it was a jones fracture
. I was put in NWB hard cast later that week and had it on for 5 weeks. The bone was not healing fast, as all jones fractures do, and i was put into a walking cast. Ive been in the walking cast for 4 weeks and have just started to use a bone stimualtor. I go back in 4 weeks. After reading about everyone else's progress with the same fracture, i feel as if my doctor is pushing the process.
Questions: Is my doctor moving me along to fast, such as weight bearing too quickly, etc? Will this bone stimulator work? How long should i wait until i start playing my sports again? I play volleyball, should i jump on it when im done or wait a bit?
Sorry for all the questions!
