Metatarsal post fracture issues...

Recommended Posts

I recently fractured metatarsals 1-5. The operating Doctor did a decent amount of sx plating and pinning met. 1 and just pinning 2,3, and 5. Now after these things completely heal what permanent issues am I facing? Will the scaring be enough to distort my foot's natural position enough that I will require some sort of fix (i.e. orthodics)? Or is it a case by case basis? Would it be worthwhile for the doctor to remove scar tissue from the 2-5 mets. while he is removing the plate? Just looking for a bit of clarification. Thanks.

These are as of 9 1/2 weeks. I'm walking with a slight limp and minimal pain. Another sx on 9/29 will take the remaining pin and plate out. Do you think I can walk right right after sx? And how long until I should be riding again?
