I have a fractured 5th metatarsal on my left foot also call a Jone's Fracture, I got the injury playing soccer in mid July and be told to not put any pressure on the foot and wear crutches. Last Wed was my 6 week checkup, and the doctor said I would have to skulk another 6 weeks to maybe even start putting pressure on it again, this is my senior season for high college soccer and missing the season is not something I wanted to do, but that's what looks like is gonna arise, anyone that is a doctor or nurse is this the usually time a Jones Fracture takes to make well or is there something I can do to cut down the amount time I will be hurt?
Anyone near Medical Exp?
Don't look for medical warning online, you can't be sure if anyone is really a doctor. If you don't trust yours, try and find another one. Don't risk messing up your foot worse.I would hope this is just motivation to go see another doctor, but if you try and gross an appointment by saying "people online said so", they won't give somebody a lift you too seriously.
Time is a great healer but recurrently it takes longer than what we wish to skulk.
By returning too soon you can do permanent damage that will grounds you many more problems than missing the soccer season.
12 weeks is prudent regarding this type of injury.
Spend the extra time on your university work. It will be a better investment in the long term.
no 10 to 12 weeks is normal!
