I broke a bone in my left foot when I landed on a stick and it rolled. Immediately it started swelling, nausea set in and I thought I would faint. I went to the emergency room, and x-ray said the (fifth) bone was broken. Referred me to bone and joint clinic, they confirmed and said if I was 18 they would pin it. No hard cast was put on and they sent me on my way because I had no insurance. That was 7 months ago. Recently I had it x-rayed again and the bone is still not healed, about an inch is still separated and it still hurts. I can’t wear shoe for long time..
