Hello,

It is too early, and you should try to be patient. I recommend performing a foot X-ray study. If there is no broken bones, your situation is going to improve in a couple of weeks.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Ilir Sharka, Cardiologist
