Fractured cuneiform

Posted by Shell D. on 7/19/04 at 09:36 (155819)

Could anyone tell me what the average time a fractured cuneiform would take to heal? (If I've been wearing a boot)
Thanks

Shell:
In general bones take 6 to 8 weeks to heal a fracture. A lot depends on the nature of the fracture -- hairline, fracture fragments in place vs. separation and so on...
