    I'm new to the site. I got hurt on the 22nd of March 2013. I was hurt while dealing with sheetrock. 6 sheets of 16' 5/8" rock fell and took me down. It buckled my leg and believe twisted my foot. I went to occupational health and was told I have a fractured fibula, lisfranc fracture left 4th metatarsal. I was told no weight bearing and was referred to an orthopaedic doctor. I went on the 1st of April, they told me to wear the cam walker I already had with no weight bearing. They were looking at my ankle and I told them the first doctor was more concerned with the lisfranc fracture. I am wondering if its weird that I had to point it out on the x-ray. They said it should heal fine beings I'm on no weight bearing. I go back on the 22nd and was told they were going to start weight bearing. I'm worried and need any input about this situation. This is all covered by workmans comp.

    Only to put as much weight on my foot as I can tolerate and to rest it if it gets too sore.
