Suffering from a Lisfran injury due to broken foot. Walking without the cast. Need help in choosing the right shoe

Hi there! I recently broke my foot and suffered from a Lisfranc injury. It s been a slow recovery and I am just allowed to walk now with out the walking cast. I am looking for a good shoe that would be strong enough to not put anymore strain on my injury in case of future damage. I was wondering if the Alegria sandal by P.G. Lite is a good sturdy sandal for the summer to start walking in now?

Hi
Thanks for writing
These fracture usually unite in 4-6 weeks times to be followed by weight bearing as tolerable..The footwear should support the foot and should be flexible enough to allow movement at different joint's of foot that is to say it should not be rigid.
Take diet rich in calcium and vitamin D to help in bone consolidation.
Take care

I broke the fifth metatarsal bone in right foot . I was in a hard cast for five weeks, them walking air boot for four weeks, all nine weeks non weight bearing. I am now allowed to walk with the boot, using crutches as needed until comfortable. Problem I am having is swelling at the lower left side of my knee that feels uncomfortable and unstable when trying to walk in it. The swollen area isn t squishy, mostly firm. Should I be concerned? Should I wrap it when walking for support or stay off of it? I don t want another problem now that my bone is almost completely healed. Thank you.

Hello I m female 53 yo. I fell a month ago and broke my foot(5 metatarsal bones) and hurt ankle of other foot. That is the only thing I mentioned while at Dr. ... Well I had hit my arm hard... but my feet hurt so severely bad, just thought I bumped my arm, didn t even look at it. And my feet were in such bad shape Doctors didn t even ask if other injuries. There was (what you would call) a goose egg, about an inch up from my elbow towards my wrist (so I would not say it s my elbow ...it s the ulna) The goose egg sized lump has only gone down a bit and it s been over a month and a big hard lump on my arm that doesn t move with the skin. I can t even put my arm on the car armrest without pain. What is it? What should I do?

Hi I have a lisfranc injury happened 14 weeks ago just confirmed injury this week with consultant. He said this it is mild but would require surgery, I believe it is the ligament. He said that if we do it now he could use 2 screws after scraping the bone or if I wait 3 or 4 weeks he would have to fuse the bone. What should I do and what is the difference i.e. the long term outcome. Would a few weeks make so much difference. Thanks Anna

I have been diagnosed with pansinusits and a deviated septum. I will be getting a CAT scan on Nov. 14. I couldn't get one earlier because I had an accident and had a LisFranc fracture and cannot drive. I have had balloon surgery which worked for a couple of weeks, oral steroids which helped while I was on them. I have been miserable for the past 3 or 4 days. I've been having sneezing fits and going through over a box of tissues a day. I wake up during because of a sneezing fit. My nose is constantly running(clear discharge). I took benadry, but this does not help. Is there any medication that I can take that stops a nose from running and stops sneezing. I am miserable. Thanks

I recently fractured my foot two days ago, lisfranc fracture. I'm in an aircast and sleeping in it at night with my foot elevated but it is burning hot. My foot feels like its on fire as do my toes. Is this a normal healing process? Maybe I shouldn't wear a sock with the aircast?
