    I broke my sesamoid bone--directly under my foot--the first foot doctor told me nothing was wrong--and to stop being a wimp--he would not give me an mri. he said to walk on it....i then went to another doctor who gave me the mri--and saw the fractured bone---i have been like a crippled person---it has taken over a year to heal.....now i have a big ball of swelling that does not go away. water is trapped in that area--and does not go away--the present doctor is trying to give me cortisone shots to get it down--it is not working....any suggestions?
