Have fractured 5th metatarsal and chipped another bone in my right foot. All a bit bruised and painful if I put weight on it or twist it by accident. A&E gave me a fabulous space age inflatable boot and a crutch and said I'd probably need it for a couple of months - really? Please tell me it needn't be that long and what I can do to speed up healing? Soooooo frustrating!!!!
