chipped bone in foot

My mom backed up on the stairs,fell and chippe a bone in her foot. Can a chipped bone mend its self or will
she have to have surgery.She is able now to walk on it. She stayed in bed as Instructed by the hospital
for 4 days. I am concerned about her possibly having to go through surgery. She is 76 years old .Though she is in good health I know at her age it can be difficult to bounce back from surgery. Please reply (ASAP).

Thank you,
A concerned daughter
