stoked to hear you got an answer.

maggie did the same thing on the second run we ever did when we first met in 2012. she rolled her ankle pretty badly and the docs said nothing was wrong. she has accessory naviculars in both feet.... they are pretty big too.

she's "dealt" with it the last few years but it has never totally healed. it was never broken but just a serious bone bruise. our latest doc out here thinks the bone just cant heal and running cause the AV to hit the other bone all the time so impossible to heal.

she's gonna charge the surgery this fall after she's runs leadville and I do run rabbit run.

I hope yours is just a broken bone and heals correctly.

I was born with AV in both feet as well. I broke the left one 20 years ago and ended up with surgery - it ended up being a 7+ month long process. Immobilization for 4 weeks to find out it didn't heal, then surgery, then non weight bearing for 4-6 weeks, to the boot for 4 weeks and finally to PT.

Having been through this before, I'm going to do everything I can to get this to heal in the next few weeks to avoid the surgery route, which means staying off of it as much as possible. The next few weeks aren't going to be fun, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

Sorry to hear Maggie has the same issue. It can be fixed, it's just a MAJOR inconvenience. My suggestion is to find a good podiatrist who knows what he's looking at. I saw Dr Hecker in Ft Collins yesterday, he thinks mine will heal on its own as per the xray it looks like the bone itself is broken and not the fibrous material that connects it to the navicular. He said if the fibrous material was broken, that surgery would be more likely.

Good luck to her at Leadville and you at RRR!!!

that sucks. well, throw the year out the window. do over January 1st :) I went to urgent (they don't) care when I fractured my hip. x-ray they interpreted as a "deep bone bruise". I to knew that wasn't right as it was way to painful. went to an ortho to get an MRI which revealed the fracture. as a side note, before I went to ortho, I went back to uc to get a doctor's note and the intake person said to me when I asked to get a note from the pa for my work, " I don't think you need a note for that". WTF? are you a medical professional ! that scared her into action.

So how did you fracture your hip? That is such a crazy injury!
