cal, fracture

hello doc ,
on april 4 2002 i fell 20 feet to the concrete below and fractured both calcaneus bones i have 12 screws a hindge pin and 2 plates in one foot and 6 screws and a plat in the other. i am in constant pain when i am walking. although it is better now i still have a great deal of pain. i understand that there is like a water sack that is under the heal bone to help take the shock off of the bone when i walk on it it feels like i am walking bone to bone. here is the question is there anything i can do to help take the wieght of my ankles as much such as working the heals and ankle with wieghts or constant walking is there a exercise for this would appriciate any suggestions u may have
