With rest and immobilisation it would take atleast 8 weeks.
With increase in age the healing takes longer and as the whole weight of the body is on your foot, it take longer for foot bones.
Foot cast will help you for faster recovery, as your movements are immobilised and this will aid the bone healing. Take care!
This would depend on your latest X-rays and your healing and clinical symptoms. This is difficult to say now as with time and you following all the instructions your healing will also be good.
Do not worry about anything other than taking care of your leg and following the instructions. If you recover perfectly you will not have any complications later. Take care!
Take care and follow up properly and remember healing is not like text book notes.
It depends on how good the patient follows instructions, depends on age, depends with person to person. You are doing good till now.
Stop worrying about one holiday. If you are fine you can go holidays whenever you want.
I was advised by the dr to take the boot off for 1 hour a day after 4 weeks, i have done this and it really hurts, does this mean it is mending or should I put the boot back on, several people have told me that i may have to have a plaster cast on if this does not heal when i go back, or even worse they may have to operate to remove the chipped bones, the thing that worries me that when i first had it xrayed they said i had one chipped bone and when i went back in a week they said i had 2 how could they have missed that and also do you think they should have xrayd it again as i could have done more damage in the week i had a tubi grip on
been to hospital amd they discovered that i only had one chipped bone not 2, havingg pysiotherapy now but confused as i have been using my crutch on my bad side and now told to use it on my good side, another nurse said to use it on the bad side so very confused
