Dropped something heavy on my foot and still experiencing pain

Hi I dropped a heavy money tin from around 3-4 ft onto the top of my right foot. Its been bruised and swollen and on one point is extremely painful. It throbs to walk and tender to touch. I did this 10 days ago and its not healing. The bruising is going now but the lump is still there and feels achy and burning/stinging when touched.

    Hello and thank you for your question. If you have not seen a Podiatrist or had an Xray I suggest doing so due to the way it is presenting as you may have a hairline fracture. All fractures require 6 – 8 weeks to heal with appropriate immobilization. If you do have a fracture you could potentially be prolonging the healing process. I hope this helps. https://www.foot.com/wp-admin/post.php?post=1961&action=edit#comments-formhttps://www.foot.com/wp-admin/post.php?post=1961&action=edit#comments-form
