Feel down some steps November last year and badly hurt foot and sprained my ankle.

No fractures visible on X-ray so was left to limp and get on with it, however after 6 weeks foot was still hurting so Physio sent me to foot consultant who did an MRI scan and found the broken bone.

He said its best left alone and to carry on as normal and eventually I won't notice it.

So if been fine for a a few months but this last few weeks my foot aches. Wouldn't say it painful, but aches all the time, and like now when in bed really aching.

Anyone experience of how long healing should take & problems with it healing?
