Question about recovery time?!

    I was diagnosed with a fifth metatarsal avulsion in June 2011. My orthopedic surgeon thought that a cast or surgery was not the correct route to go. I think because I am uninsured, just a guess. He decided we should wait and see if it would fuse.

    So here I am, eight months later, still with a mild amount of pain. There is still a bump and I often experience numbness in that area and up in to my toes.

    Could I have received an incorrect diagnosis? I am wondering if a jones fracture could possibly be a more accurate description, given my long healing time. FYI. I am a 33yo female. Excellent health. (Except my sore foot)
