how long will it take to walk comfortably after breaking 2nd 3rd and 4th metatarsals?
So about 5 weeks ago I was riding bikes with my friend when I looked back to talk to her for two seconds and my wheel got stuck between the sidewalk and grass and I fell, breaking my 2nd 3rd and 4th metatarsals...
I did not need surgery but I was put in a six week fiberglass cast. I get my cast off june 7th which I'm super excited about after not being able to walk for so long! I did use crutches for the first two weeks but since my schools a frikin mall and I was getting bloodblisters on my hands and sides I just gave up and started using a wheelchair instead.
So basically I was wondering about how long it will take me to be able to walk normally again(since I was reading these forums and ppl with only 1 broken metatarsal took like 1 year to fully heal). I am getting a boot for four weeks after getting my cast off by the way. Do you think I will be able to march (marching band) by the end of summer (august 2nd) or will it still probably hurt to walk?
Sorry so many questions but I really need more opinions on this from people who've gone through the same or similar things.
