Re: Broken 2nd Metatarsal Recovery Time? Quicken?
I broke my 1st Metatarsal two weeks ago and am about 5 days post op. I know in general that upping your intake of vitamin D3, Calcium and Fish Oil supplements are all recommended with any fracture. Also, if you smoke at all quit immediately as smokers are at high risk for having a non union from fractures. Fresh pineapple is well known in Europe to speed the mending of fractures. Lastly, my surgeon says icing, elevating and absolutely no weight bearing for six weeks will make for a strong recovery.
