It is absurd the length of time it has taken to fully heal. My last visit at the Orthopedic doc it was at 85%. There is still one small metatarsal stress fracture on the mend. I also go to a rehabilitation clinic. I guess when I think about it though, all of my weight is on it. Um, that’s a lot of pressure, yeah. The cast came off after six weeks and I assumed I would be cured. I wore the boot for three more months after that. I still have to wrap it in athletes tape every day.
