In early July I fell on a jobsite and fractured my right heel. I went through all the medical procedures (X-rays, CT scan ) and ended up with a MC Walker type removable cast and an order not to put weight on the heel for a number of weeks. I am 53 years old, a non smoker, and in reasonable health. It has been nine weeks and I am still on the same status. Isn't this a long time for a closed, noncomplicated type facture to heal? The orthopedic surgeon stated that on a basis of one to ten this fracture was a three or four.
