Has anyone dealt with a fractured/broken foot whilst pregnant?
I tripped on Thursday night and have fractured by 2nd, 3rd, and 4th metartasals. Am currently in a moon boot with crutches. Hubby started a new job on the Friday and I have a 3yo so its fun times.
And am getting so much conflicting information. At the hospital I was told to start weight bearing on my heel when I could, and 4 days later I can now do that a little bit. Went to the GP to get a referral to a specialist and he said to do the same thing. Spoke with the specialist this morning and his receptionist (I assume) told me no don't do that and keep off it. She also said that this will need surgery even without seeing xrays. So I am so confused about what to do. Weightbearing on my heel was making it just bearable to move about the house with a big preggo belly. If I do need surgery then it will have to wait until after the baby is here anyway I would assume. And even then I dont know how I look after a baby and toddler on crutches after foot surgery anyways.....thanks for letting me vent!
