Thank you for your query.

If there is a frank fracture in the left foot then why was steroid injection given and no immobilization done of the fractured area? It is very difficult to suggest anything for the lumps without assessing them. I suggest that you consult your orthopedic surgeon who shall be in a better position to guide you further both for the fracture and the lumps that you are mentioning.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction.

Wishing you an early recovery.
