I have been using moon boot from approximately seven weeks, for a fourth base disruption. I have just had x-rays. I would like an opinion on two things, please. Should I be worried about the spacing between the first and second metatarsal (Lisfranc injury)? There does not seem to be any space on the oblique view between the cuboid and the fifth metatarsal. Is that an issue? I apologize for the quality of the photos, and I just was not able to get a better photo of the x-ray. Thank you. I am still in tremendous pain as well as any pressure over my midfoot hurts. The original injury was over eight weeks back.

Thank you doctor,
No, I did not take a CT scan. I did have an MRI, which showed the disruption of the capsule of the fourth metatarsal and the cuboid. The surgeon said I was lucky to escape surgery because I had not ruptured the posterior part of the capsule. He did say it was Lisfranc injury, to begin with. I have been non-weight bearing, but only in the boot. However, I have children who have been sick so have occasionally been walking on my foot. There is still some swelling over the midfoot as well.
