...but the ouchy twinges from moving the formerly broken metatarsal are down to a barely noticeable minimum; the pain is down to a "1," on the old 1 to 10, by which I mean that if I really concentrate on my foot, I can feel a difference between left and right that translates as the mildest of discomfort on the right. Does that make sense to anyone else?
For those curious about the Vienna Fireworks Q, billtnva, sew_200e, and I were on the community center side. The mortar went off towards the elementary school side of the field. I suppose it could just as easily have launched our way, but it didn't.

Owwie! Busted metatarsal? That must've taken for*ev*er...

September 16th was the incident. You can go back to contemporaneous entries for the play-by-play. Evulsion fracture of the 5th upper metatarsal.
that makes sense to me. somoene danced onto my foot back on memorial day and it hurts when I first get up but otherwise isn't noticeable. going to a doctorabout it seems pointless.

my only concern really is reinjuring myself...and apparently just due caution and wearing my brace [a neat "ankle corset"] when I'm going to be on broken terrain or otherwise at risk of twisting my ankle is the order of the day.
Does that make sense to anyone else?
Yup. I finally made a pain scale for myself that included such descriptions, so that when my pain doctor asks what my average pain over the last month has been, I have some sort of reasonable answer besides "Uh...what's the average of 'sometimes it's OK' and 'sometimes I can't move'?"
Glad it's feeling so much better!
*YAY* (for you) I dropped a weight on my right foot. I had tried a new energy drink at my gym and it had so much caffeine that I was shaking, so the iron plate slipped from my hands. I elevated my foot and iced it. I'm getting better slowly - but oh, the pain (not so bad if i don't stand up). If I had health insurance, I would find out if I broke anything.
If your pain is 1 - that's pretty close to "all better."

Are you any closer to getting insurance?
Mostly with broken toes it's tape 'em together and move on...for bones in the foot itself or ankle, more complicated.
