5th metatarsal -to Rocky Davis and others

Hello Rocky,

Thank you for responding to my post. You are very correct in stating that the bone needs to be stressed to a certain extent. I forgot to mention that I did put my own weight onto my bone. Gently at first, and only as much as it could bear. I deduced that the bone ought to be sressed lightly in order to promote healing. However, the fiber glass cast was NOT the right thing for me, at this time. I know it,I feel it. I have a question to ask of you: What do you mean by "cam cast"? Is this something like a fiber glass boot (much like a ski boot), with a lining inside? In my house, I do not walk around unprotected. I wear some other shoes with a lot of padding and sturdy. I did not want to mention the brand, because I am not here to sell them. Finally, I am NOT giving advice to anyone. I am sharing my heartfelt experiences. I hope this helps. In health and healing. Pat.

P.S. I would put this under the thread, but the reason I am putting it under a new post is because I am not sure how to put it under the previous thread. I don't see anything on my screen which would allow me to put it under the thread. If anyone can help in this regard, I would appreciate it.
