Hello! Welcome to HealthcareMagic!

It would depend on the extent of the repair that may have occurred since the accident occurred. Repeat imaging to assess for changes would likely be needed. In many cases, watching and monitoring while staying off the foot, is recommended. I hope this helps.

Hopefully this clarifies your concerns. Thank you for the query.

Take care
