    Default Understanding X-Ray report help

    Can anyone please help explain this to me? My GP didn't seem to be able to clearly explain and kept wanting to refer me to a foot specialist. I'm having an MRI Wednesday but would like to know more - all I understood was something about cartilage but then she got side tracked as she thinks she sees a crack on my X-ray and I was lost.

    Thanks - I hurt my toe 3 weeks ago at the gym and it won't settle with the pain so I definitely need to follow up - my GP is talking about putting me in a walking cast 😱

    Please thank your DH for me

    Default Understanding X-Ray report help

    I forgot about this thread

    I had an MRI done which showed two tears to the plantar plate - under my big toe and another under the second toe. I tore the cartilage off the bone and took a bit of bone with it which has compressed back into the bone.

    I was in a moon/cam boot for 3 months and had only been out a month when I stupidly planked with my son and and have re-injured it. I went back in the boot for two weeks but it's still not right.

    I'm loathed go go back to the orthopaedic surgeon as I didn't like him. I've been under the care of a podiatrist who doesn't think he can do any more. I don't want surgery, just want the stupid thing to heal.
