Broken Metatarsals

hi there,
10 days ago i broke my 3rd &  4th metatarsal and baby toe.I am in a plaster cast and have a fracture clinic appointment on Wednesday. Is there a chance they will give me a walking boot? i am going on holiday in 12 days time.
Thanks

Hallo Nicola
If the bones did not shift and the alignment is good and there are signs of good healing taking place, they may give you a walking boot after a week or two in the cast. It will depend however on the healing process case by case.
