How long did it take to heal? I fractured my foot (2nd metatarsal) a little over 6 weeks ago. I didn't go in for 13 days, then a week after that they sent me to a podiatrist. He put me in a removable cast for 3 weeks then told me to wear my surgical shoe for residual pain. I ended up putting the cast back on because I couldn't take the pain anymore, but I'm still in pain just sitting here.
I have to pay out of pocket, so I'm not sure if I should go back to the podiatrist or what. I'm not sure if it's normal or if there's even anything they can do. He said at my 2 week recheck that it wasn't healing as fast as they'd like it to, but it wasn't anything to be concerned about.

Next question overall
I can't figure out how I'm supposed to enter the weeks and days on the ticker...
