Metatarsal fracture
Around 1 week back my leg twisted while walking and i fell off and was diagnosed with 5th metatarsal fracture . Plaster cast was applied and my pain was relieved within2-3 days . Now from yesterday i'm feeling slight discomfort in the fracture region, its not pain but slight discomfort feeling. Is it normal or should i get it checked once again, my doctor told me to come after 2 weeks. I have a 6 month old baby so taking calcium supplements as well. What should i do? How long will it take to heal completely as i have a marriage of close relative after 2 weeks, can i travel by car or train? And are there chances that my fracture will not heal?
