What does your doctor say, or haven't you asked?

He said to stay in boot for three more weeks , then another xray. This is 5th surgery on this foot--lis franc injury-- and second on big toe last one had non union.
Just nervous and discouraged.

When I asked what your doctor said, I meant in answer to the question you asked here.

He said that probably due to all the trauma it was taking longer.

Why do you insist on making this like pulling teeth? Your question was . . "Can I still expect good results?" . . is was NOT "How long will I have to stay in the boot?" . . and NOT . . "Why is it taking so long?" Surely, as whether of not you can still expect good results is the most important thing you want to know and is what you asked here, you also must have asked that same question to your own doctor. So what was his answer?
