Metarsal bone fracture NEW
by: Anonymous

I had an injury about three weeks ago. A broken metarsal bone in my right foot. Luckily no surgery required nor cast. I've been wearing special medical boots. The discomfort I feel every day, is that a burning sensation in the left area of the foot. Looks like the blood is not flowing well. How long would it take to heal, and how do you explain this sensation?

healing time

Most bones take 6 weeks to heal. It will vary depend on both where the fracture is and the type of fracture it is. 6 weeks is an average. Here is a little more on fractures.
