BD, I was dismissed from the fracture clinic with "mobilise as it allows", so no, not really as I don't really know what to do. Any advice would be most welcome indeed.
Fatankle, I agree with the too early thing, although I am within the eight weeks you mention, so your message is a welcome ray of hope. I'm hoping I'll just know when its stopped being too soon, but I'd say it looks more like being ten or twelve weeks. Hope you heal up well and get back on the road.
I broke my third metatarsal in the end of July. My foot was in plaster for five weeks and for the first two of those I was completely off of it.
I've freed it from the evil fibreglass clutches now, and don't need the hand crushing aluminium crutches (thank god), but I still limp when I'm walking.
I can limp really quite fast and can limp really quite far, in limping terms, but feel that if I can't walk properly the chances of having what by now will surely be a very short and difficult run being wise are slim to non-existent.
I was hoping I'd be okay for a wee ten minutes or something by this weekend, but I really don't feel it would be the right thing to do as I'm still limping. Can anyone please tell me it would? I've pretty much consigned myself to not racing this year but I really did hope I'd be at least out there. Right now it feels like this'll take forever.
