I went to the Orthopedic doctor this morning. The stress fracture is in my 2nd metatarsal bone. I have a little solid soled bootie to wear. The idea is to keep my foot from bending when I walk. I am not under orders to wear the boot - but I need to be careful walking - so I am going to wear it for a week and then make a decision about going back to my shoes - or continue with the boot. He suggested that I need to stay away from running for 4-6 weeks. To be honest he was more concerned about my high arches in my feet. He wanted to make sure that I wore good shoes . . . check and that I replace them frequently . . . check. The bone scan also showed that I previously had a stress fracture of my 4th metatarsal - the Dr. estimated that it probably took place 1-2 years ago. I must have run through it - I don't recall it hurting . . . certainly not enough to go to the doctor.
Anyway - the good news is that I get to ride my bike. I was going to try it out tonight when I got home - but didn't get home very early from work so will try it tomorrow after work.
Stay healthy out there . . . and listen to your body.
