About a year ago I had intense pain in my left foot. After seeing a podiatrist and having a bone scan it was determined that I had a stress fracture in my cuboid bone. During that time I was in the Army and had already been diagnosed with plantar fascistis, heel spur, bone spur in my ankle, and possible osteoarthritis in my midfoot. The doctor said that I could just wear a boot for 3 weeks and then it would be fine. I got out of the Army a few weeks later and when I returned to the States I saw a podiatrist at the VA as I was still in pain. In March they did a bone scan, which showed that I still had a stress fracture in my cuboid bone and he had me wear a walking shoe for a few months. In May I was told that it was healing properly and that I didn't have to wear anymore. About a month ago my foot started hurting so badly that I could not walk at all, so I put the shoe back on. It still continues to hurt badly and I am unable to stand for more than an hour, running is out of the question, and I am barely am to walk. The only tests that have been done are repeated bone scans. Is it possible that the treatment I'm receiving is not enough? Is it normal to have a cuboid stress fracture for almost a year?
