I have a friend who has broken the same bone in his foot 3 times. His doctor told him that once a bone in the foot has been broken it tends to happen again (and again in my friends case). I don't know if the Doc explained why or not.
My problem is the knees. After having one knee replaced fishing has become far more comfortable. I had the other "scoped" a couple months later and I am really glad I did. Of course there is not real cure for cabin fever except getting out of the cabin!
