Re: Post surgery 5th metatarsal Foot
I see this happened in April, I actually broke my 5th in May '12 with a compound fracture and had surgery to put a plate and screws in. It's almost December now and I am back to running very short distances, weights, swimming, etc. However, I feel the plate with everything I do. It isn't necessarily painful, just very annoying and uncomfortable. Since you are slightly ahead of me in recovery, have you had similar issues or do you not feel the plate?? I'm contemplated having it taken out, as the bone is now completely healed.
