  1. A year ago I broke my fifth metatarsal and was placed in a
    cast. The bone healed, yet I am still suffering
    pain which is worse at some times than others.
    I figure this is just something I’m going to have to live with, but I need some advice on how to deal with it. Specifically, should I use heat or ice to alleviate the pain? Should I be exercising the foot to build up muscles or should I be resting it?.

  2. Dear Bunions- We are crestfallen to hear of your vicissitudes. I once sprained my vicissitudes, so I know how it feels. You’ve come to the right place for advice.

    Forget rest. You’ll sleep plenty when they throw dirt on your face. I suggest frantic activity, and lots of ice. You put the ice in a highball glass, and pour in four fingers of bourbon. That’s if you have really fat fingers, of course, otherwise, use a boxing glove for a jigger.

    Anyhoo, after a coupla those, you won’t know your metatarsal from Saul of Tarsus.
