My GP has told me over the phone that it is a " displaced fracture of my 5th metarsal". I will be seeing him again tomorrow ( saw him yesterday and he referred me for an x-ray) . My limited understanding at this stage that fracture = broken, displaced = the two broken bits aren't aligned , metartasal = a bone in my foot --- and he was talking something about 8 weeks . He knows that I am keen to start running again - but he said no running or jumping until he sees me again. Strange thing is that I have been walking quite a lot since doing this over 2 weeks ago - and although still a bit sore it "feels" like it is improving. I WAS thinking of maybe trying a little bit of run/walk at parkrun on Saturday. But now, if they have to operate to align the bones and put a cast on me , I won't even be walking it!!!
Anyway, I have found some good Youtube videos of upper body workouts to be done using a chair, a dumbell (optional) and a broken foot. Tried a 30 minute one yesterday - could only do 15 minutes of it - quite hard!!!
