question for folks who have previously broken a bone
I am just (finally!) recovering from a navicular foot fracture. The Xray seems to show some healing, so my doctor has let me start walking around on the foot without the boot. It's been eight days now, and I've even taken two bike rides, and so far, so good - no pain, no increased swelling (in fact, I sort of think the swelling has decreased). I'm hoping this means I'm healed.
But today it's raining, and for the first time I began feeling a bit of discomfort in the bone. I felt it when the pressure started to change, in the middle of the night. Is that just coincidence -- might my bone still be struggling to heal? Or is it really true that once you break a bone, you always know when it's going to rain? Can some of you who have previously broken bones share your experience with me -- does your healed bone still ache a bit before a change in the weather?
