Painful Foot
Hi there,

About two and a half months ago I fell and got a metatarsal fracture on my right foot. I was then put in a "moon boot" to support my foot and help the bone to heal for six weeks.

I have been out of the boot for about three weeks but I still have a lot of pain in my foot, I don't know whether the cold is affecting it but it is still painful when I walk and I just thought that by now it would be 100% better and not give me any more hassles.

Do think that I should go back to wearing my boot for a little while longer or do you think that I should go and see a doctor?

Many thanks.
