... I'm a flatfoot reconstruction alumni! I had my left foot reconstructed in February 2010...so 4 yrs ago. I had an accessory navicular bone in the arch of my foot that I was born with and it caused my arch to fall over the years.. I'm 55 yrs old, so I don't go out and run marathons or anything! ...

... After a long 2 months I was diagnosed with a 2nd metatarsal stress fracture. From my understanding the crack is high up on the bone near the cuneiform bone.

... I am jumping in on this one as I have good news regarding healing a shattered 1st metatarsal. I had a graft done and an ex fixator placed to hold my broken bone in place with four stainless screws. At two weeks they saw nothing good on the first post op x ray and promptly ordered a bone growth stimulator. ... (8 replies)
... Did your foot ever heal? If so, how long did it take? I have a friend in your identical situation & I would like to pass on your experience to her. I'm hoping everything turned out well for you. (8 replies)
... use about a half of a fresh pineapple combined with two cups of spinach when I don't have a broken foot. Spinach is a no no when you have a fracture as it slows healing and the AMA actually warns that it doubles healing time. However, romain leaves or dandelion leaves work well with the pineapple. ...

... I had a Giant Cell Tumor basically my whole first metatarsal was destroyed. They took bone from hip. I had the surgery 2x, the first was nonunion and so far the 2nd is also. Good Luck with your xray!! ... (8 replies)
... ray, and lo and behold there is some healing. The fracture line is still apparent, but is now "fuzzy". Which means some healing has occurred. That much is good. ... (8 replies)
... I am courious because I had one done during flat foot reconstruction. They used a cadaver bone piece and put a plate over the area. So I am wondering also how fast the bone heals. ... (8 replies)
... I saw my Dr 12 weeks after having a bone graft done on my foot, my xray showed non union. He wants to see me back in 5 weeks. What are the chances of the bone actually healing in 5 weeks if there was nothing after 12 weeks? ... (8 replies)

... never used once, and a knee crutch thing, which I've also never seen her use. She also ramped up the smoking, much to my dismay as I read that smoking increases bone healing time. I really wanted her to be healthy for the skiing season! ... (6 replies)
... Equally important.......STOP SMOKING! It interferes with bone healing. My surgeon would not even consider working on me if I was a smoker. No point in wasting his time if I was just going to ruin his work by smoking. ... (1 replies)

... I didn't shower for the first 3 days, didn't care what I looked like, lol. My husband subtlety (well, not so subtlety :)) suggested that I shower on the third day. The bath in a bag did a great job for those first couple of weeks. It really depends on how you feel. Remember when you use the cast cover to pull it up and push it down slightly so the rubber gasket is upward,... (69 replies)
... ips! I don't have the "bath in a bag". Interesting. I'll check out a few medical supply shops for that. Would you know when it would be a reasonable amount of time to expect to take a shower, sitting on my shower chair? ... (69 replies)
