Default Broken foot sucks

Right now my foot hurts pretty bad right now and the fracture is pretty bad. The type is a jones fracture. they are is a area of poor blood supply and there is a high procent that is won't heal it like 15 to 20 which is a lot if you think about it. I'm in different walking boot until I go back on August 7. I find out if I need foot surgery that day as well.

Thanks gilly
Only one week until I find if I need a screw put in. that 1,800,000 to 2,400,000 don't really heal because the type of break in my foot is a special type of fracture it called a jones fracture. The history of it interesting it was named after a orthopedic surgeon named sir Robert jones

Sir Robert Jones was a well-known surgeon who founded a famous orthopaedic hospital here in the UK, Kara I was training as an orthopaedic technician there for a while. It was one of the world-class ortho hospitals many years ago, and it was the place where the first ever anterior scoliosis surgery in the world was done by a surgeon called Robert Roaf.

The Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Hospital doesn't have the same great reputation that it once had in the scoliosis world because it is located in a very rural location rather than in a major city, but historically it was very important.

So, at least your fracture is named after someone very cool

But, at least 8 out of 10 cases DO heal, Kara try not to fret. And it will only be a small surgery if you do need it done, especially after going through spinal fusion like a superhero

But 15 to 20 procent is still a lot
Which is 1,800,000 people to 2,400,000 people which is quiet a lot if you think about it

Many more millions have scoliosis Kara. The number of people affected by this don't make any difference to you at all, not one bit; the percentages do, and the percentages are well in your favour. There's only a 2 in 10 chance at most that your foot won't heal - try to look on the bright side and even then, you'd only need a tiny surgery compared with your back op.
