Hi! I'm sorry for your injury. It's a rough one! I fractured my 5th met about 10 years ago. It was a Jones fracture. Did they mention that term to you? It is called that based on where the 5th met is fractured and is more serious than a regular 5th met fracture. I ask because it determines what your recovery process is. I'm wondering if you injured your ankle when you broke your 5th met. A LOT of times 5th met fractures happen during an ankle sprain which is what happened to me. I severely sprained my ankle, tore cartilage in my ankle, and broke my 5th met. It's what started the ball rolling on my 2nd ankle surgery (this injury happened 3 years after I had had that ankle surgically reconstructed). I think maybe you should ask your doctor (be sure you see a foot/ankle board certified orthopedic surgeon) to check out your ankle. You might need X-rays and an MRI. Good luck and let us know what you find out!! Hang in there, it does get better!
