    Hi, I broke the 3rd metatarsal, dislocated the bone. Had an xray, doctor said the chances of recovery would be the same whether it healed with or without surgery. Trying to heal without, surgery is my absolute late resort. It's been 10 days, still non-weight bearing. Most of the swelling has gone done, as well as the discoloration. Strangly, what is the most irritating is the top of my foot, I think it's the Cuniform. It's the most painful with touch, which is scary bc I don't know how I am going to be able to wear shoes. Has anyone had the same experience and does the pain improve? Thank you

    May need to get another x-ray or other imaging to check for damage in that area.
