    I broke my 5th metatarsal in the middle of july 2009 and it healed well (so the doctors said, although he only touched it when the cast came off for about 2 seconds so i dont know how he knew that!)

    However I went to the doctors in November comlaining it was sore and hard to walk on for long periods of time. they said this was normal as had only been a short while to heal.

    It has now been 8 months since I broke my foot and am still in pain, though it is not everyday it is pretty sore and the bone does stick out of my foot a little.

    Is this normal still? Should i be in pain?

    Any help would be very much appreciated
