I've had some foot pain lately and it's been killing me. Really sapping my motivation to run. Well it two weeks to get into a podiatrist. They took xrays and yeap, I have a fractured fibular sesamoid, in my left foot.
They gave me some shoe inserts and basically told me that I didn't have to change my routine. Then I get home tonight and do 2 hours of internet reading and 99% of the treatments that I read say 6-8 week so NO pressure on that foot, i.e. Cast.
What should I make of this. I'm calling this guy tomorrow but I really don't want to have surgery if I don't need to. Crap.
I'll happily give up running & biking for 6-8 week if I need to. But if the Dr. says "keep doing what you are doing...you'll be fine...if it doesn't get better we'll remove it." UM YEAH. But what about the "don't move it for 6-8 weeks.
Anyone have any input or experience? It would be very much appreciated. Truly.
