After reading many of the blogs on this type of fracture, it appears that everyone is different. My accident was a fall and a break to my Left Cuboid. I was in emergency with-in 30 mins and diagnosed quickly. After 5 days on crutches NWB I met with an Orthopedic Sergon that agreed with the original diagnosis and put me in a Walking cast but could not put any weight on it for 6 wks.. I began putting weight on it 15 lbs every few days and have about 90% of my weight on it, still with crutches. I am now 8 wks out.....I have tried to walk w/o them but can't still too much pain. I go back to the Dr next Tuesday with hopes of being off the crutches, but I don't think so. I am worried that I have more going on than just the Cuboid around the ankle. I have only had X-rays no MRI was done. Could weight and age play a big factor in this? I am 5'6 and 175lb and in mid 40's.
This was the result of a stupid freek accident and I can't stand it much longer.!!! I feel so frustrated...
Anyone with any advise? Or anyone completly healed from one of these strange fractures?
