    Traumatic arthitis 4th metatarsal

    I broke my 4th metatarsal on my right foot two years ago, I wore a boot for most of the summer. When the boot was removed my x ray showed traumatic arthritis. That was two years ago and now I am experiencing frequent pain in that area. I'm wondering if it is something to just live with or if I should see an orthopedist.

    I was originally treated by a Podiatrist who said a joint fusion my be in my future.

    I would suggest you see an orthopedic foot and ankle specialist.
