I’m in a boot for 4 weeks.
in an interesting and related bit of info, at least i don’t have a lisfranc fracture: “a fracture within the forefoot (usually involving the 2nd metatarsal) and an associated lateral displacement of the lateral four metatarsal bones from the tarsel bones (the Lisfranc joint). This represents a disruption of the intermetatarsel ligament that stabilises the joint between the 1st and 2nd metatarsals (predictably named the Lisfranc ligament). This was first described by him during his time as a military surgeon in Napoleon’s army around 1813 and occurred when riders fell from their horses with their feet caught in their stirrups.”
just a little bit of ortho-equine history from dr. dreamy.
