Jones Fracture

See, in the middle of the arch, that bone that is sticking down with the diagonal gap. That gap isn’t supposed to be there.

I was offered a choice.
1. Full leg cast for 10 weeks and it might work. If it didn’t then either recast or surgery.
2. Surgery. Cut the side of the foot, screw in a nice, expensive titanium screw, sew up. Recovery 4 weeks. Wikipedia says this is the only way to go for an athlete!

I won’t take pain meds. I dislike drugs. Surgery, really?

I picked surgery. Scheduled for next Tuesday.

Oh, can’t drive.
