Foot bones will not heal

Common Questions and Answers about Foot bones will not heal

foot

It is probably too late to do anything even if I did break something....will it heal?? I stand on my feet for my work (yes, I worked after this happened). I do try to keep it "up" when I can...hurts to dangle. Any suggestions?? S.S.
With increase in age the healing takes longer and as the whole weight of the body is on your foot, it take longer for foot bones. Foot cast will help you for faster recovery, as your movements are immobilised and this will aid the bone healing. Take care!
can some annular tears just take a bit longer to heal? Also I have been diagnosed with a tarlov cyst 1.3cm at S2. I was wondering what pain is caused by what. My left lower back muscle and left glut muscle twinge and feel like they are going to spasm. When they do spasm the pain is quite bad but the aftermath of the spasm can take weeks to feel better. Also can you exercise with annular tears? I was swimming but the rotation of freestyle caused another spasm.
he didnt even bother xraying it or anything. it looks like there is an indentation on the top of her foot (its in the bone, not just from the swelling) and you can clearly feel a bone that is lower on the ball of one of her toes directly under "the dent.
I am glad that you found us but sorry to hear about your foot pain and limitations. You are young. Younger bones tend to heal more quickly and completely. I too wonder if your physician ordered and you completed physical therapy? How long ago was the fracture? If it was fairly recent it is not too late for additional physical therapy. Actually it's rarely if ever too late.
the ice thing worked and my swelling has gone.only some bruises are there which i know will heal. TAHNK YOU for ur support.
I went to the doctor they took x-rays and said there were no broken bones or anything out of the ordinary and that I should be fine with an air splint ice and stretches. It was a pretty painful sprain nonetheless. My left foot bent inward farther than it should and I rolled on top of it as I fell backwards. I admit that I did not Ice as much as I should have, but I did wear the air splint and regularly walked to work, but for the most part I didn't do anything too strenuous.
There is probably no joint involvement. Hence, I do not think there will be any problem in bending the foot as you used to do earlier. The best part of all this is that you are getting the proper treatment which you were entitled to immediately after the accident. Wish you good luck.
Hi my foot was crushed under a 10 x20 ft canapy and right foot Big toe was pointed at 2-3 o'clock. I straighter the foot and knew the foot was broken. Phy. ***.

my concern is that he has a severe wound that will not heal. They doctors tried the wound vac but they took it off today becuase it was causing the wound to get worse..... ugh.... i am at a loss for my brother and any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Imagine if you had a nasty scrape on your foot. You would probably favor it and not use it as much. Just keep a close eye on her foot for the next few days. Watch for any break through bleeding again, swelling, etc. If it looks like it's getting worse at all, take her in to the vet. It's hard to say without seeing it for myself but the little scrapes I've seen over the past 19 years heal up well on their own after being cleaned.

A lot of the symptoms were not identified on the internet web sites. She had a bad case of athletes foot that took two months to heal. About twice a month she would wake up in the middle of the night complaining of a stomache ache. She would throw up and have a bout of diahrea. The next morning she would be so tired she could not go to school. (I thought it was a virus)but it was related to her thyroid. She did complain of itchy skin. She also starting blinking her eyes-like a tic.
Broke 3 bones, 3rd, 4th, 5th metatarsals. Its been 8 weeks. Finally in a shoe boot & out of the other cumbersome contraption. The doc said i could gradually walk up to 1 mile/ day. First day after taking off the compression stocking, why is the top of my foot all bruised, similar to when just broken? Does that mean I over did it? Called & the nurse said she doesn't know. Getting some sharp electrical like impulses intermittently in that area of my foot too. She asked if I have diabetes.
i have been told that i will loose my foot if the hardware is not removed due to the infection in my bones . im so scared .any help would be appreciated .
The surgeons had to operate and take a small piece of bone from my right hip and placed it between the 2 bones in my right foot to try and rejoin them. Unfortunately I continued to have pain until it eventually became really difficult for me to walk even 100 meters. I went back to the hospital where a scan and X-rays were done. I went through a second operation last year 2010 to remove the pins/metal that was inserted previously.
It feels like pins and needles and my leg hurts when it swells. My right foot will swell slightly but not bad. I had an echocardiogram that was fine. I am to see a vascular surgeon next week, my MD thinks lymphedema possibly. It is terrible, I feel like I am 100 the way I walk and drag my leg. My leg feels heavy as well. It looks terrible, like an elephant trunk it is quite embarrassing. I need to lose weight but it is hard to walk and I can't even put a sneaker on to exercise.
No one will probably believe me, because this does not sound probable, but I'm going to say this, anyway. When I was much younger, perhaps 23 years of age, the bones under the base of my tongue shattered for no apparent reason. I could feel these tiny bone fragments moving about, and the pain was tremendous, cutting me from within. Soon, these bones had formed into a pile, so I elected to remove them myself, in order to avoid a trip to the E.R.
to this week (Thurs) as I felt that having pain at this point wasn't normal........my fear is that the foot is not healing for some reason and they will either continue with this boot for more time, put a permanent cast on me or say only surgery can repair.......the last 2 options I really have no inclination to do as it would severly incapacitate me in being able to care for the children. My questions: 1.
I am sorry but I guess I did not make it clear. It is not my ankle it is my foot. When I fell my foot fell over itself and than it twisted. When it twisted I heard a snap.At first I devoloped a big goose egg on the side of my foot. The swelling was just above my ankel at the widest part of my foot on the outside of my foot up across top of foot. Within minutes,my whole foot was huge. I have never had anything wronge with my foot before.
Using is not an option. I know broken bones are a b!tch but you will be glad you didnt use once you heal. Stay strong and keep your mind busy.....
Born 2 months prematurely with club feet and pretty severe scoliosis, to military family. Military drs. corrected club feet as best as they could in the 50's and did nothing about scoliosis [not so sure they could have]. In my 20's and until late 30's I became an avid runner, at that time without the benefit of great runing shoes for that purpose because correct shoes were not yet manufactured and recommended to runners. The reason I quit running was back pain, sciatica, and migranes.
as it has been and would not have reached the foot either. I did read a bit on sciatica and yes it says only to the knee pain and not lower so i guess he is right on that one. The only thing that concerns them as far as the neuro goes is that i have had memory issues i cannot finish half of my sentences and that started early on hehe. Also have slow word recall and such thing like putting frozen fries and peanut butter in the fridge. We are all stumped and i have read on everything from A to Z.
I'm 14 and wondering if I should or should not get my extra navicular bones out they really starting to hurt what should I do????
Wrap with Ace wrap, but not too tightly. Elevation: Whenever you sit down, the foot should be elevated. If you sit on the sofa, put your leg up on the sofa too. If you are in bed, put a pillow under the ankle and calf. This will help the extra fluid to drain back to the heart. If you sit in a chair with your feet on the floor, the swelling will increase. An Xray may or may not show a fracture.
They say that these bulging discs heal in 5 years with no intervention, yeah right. Mine will heal then I will lean down to tie my shoe and blow my disc again. At least if the surgery is done I can possibly mtn bike again, or continue rafting. I do not know much about the surgery but I am at the point where I have no other option. I cannot take the pain any more.
Well, I guess I should change that to if the chiro knows about chiari and will not manipulate ur need it is ok.....hmmmmmmm wish I knew one around here. I went to a chiro for whiplash too.... And whiplash results in ur lordosis being curved the wrong way...and can even with chiari o causing more issues than a larger herniation could. Thanks for the info !!
At the current Grade II-B it the goal is slow the process but I MUST have surgery to reconstruct my arch (I have flat feet) or I will lose the use of my foot. This is not arthroscopic and is major major surgery with long recoup time, etc. I guess the alternative is loss of the ankle/foot in future if I don't do something. I have advanced arthritis with advanced degenerative changes ... he showed me on x-rays they took in addition to the MRI .. no cartildge and bone against bone.
