Hi, I have a fracture of my 5th metatarsal. The ER doctor told me it was a Jones fracture and that I should be not put any weight on the foot. I followed up with the ortho and she said it wasn’t a Jones Fracture, but it wasn’t an avulsion fracture. She said it was right on the line between the two zones. I am in a walking cast, but I am still having pain. I was wondering if the prognosis is the same as an avulsion fracture or is the possibility of nonunion greater? Thanks.
