Chronic Non-Healing Foot Fracture ???

What does this mean "Chronic Non-Healing Foot Fracture"?

I just had Xrays taken last week of my left foot and this is what they reported, or so I was told by the nurse on the phone. I am being sent to see an orthapedic next week. Just wondering what to expect?

I fell on July 4th and thought I had sprained my ankle. Stayed off of it for a week or so. Then began walking on it, was very painful at first but then it would ease up and be OK. Until I got off my feet...

A few weeks later, my foot started swelling on the top and I couldn't fit in my shoe...just has kept getting worse. Now 2 1/2 months later the pain can be a 10+ at times. It can be constant throbbing to sharp stabbing pains....It feels like painful electrical shocks sometimes. Other times, when I step down on my foot to walk, it feels like the bones are trying to push through the skin. I also have tingling and numbness going to my toes now. Pain up in my ankle area now too.

The Shin Splint Compression Wrap applies gentle pressure on soft tissue next to the tibia (shin bone), helping prevent additional tearing of the soft tissue away from the tibia. Compression not only reduces additional damage, it alleviates pain and enhances the healing process.
