on stress fracture

Hey KP et al. in the know!

Can you tell if a stress fracture is correctly healed when pain doesn't occur anymore in the way it did before diagnosis?
I was diagnosed with a "mild" stress fracture on my tibia about 4 weeks ago (via x-ray). My doc said to take 3 weeks completely off running and I took 4 and today run for 30min with no pain. The injured area had maybe a little inflammation after the run but absolutely no pain. The doc didn't want to do any follow-up x-rays and said that I must just work within "pain-limits".

thanks,

-JH
