calcaneus fracture of both feet, after surgery

On April 29, 2003 I fell off a roof and crushed my left calcaneus bone and fractured my right in 3 places. Sx was done 3 weeks later on my left foot with pins and screws and placed in cast, right foot was put into cast with no sx. Sept cast have been removed, dr. said I will have a foot of a 75 year old women. Therapy was supposed to be started after removal of cast, but dr. decided against it. I can not move my left foot in a circular motion or side to side, so balance is a issue. The pain and spasms that I have are not something that I look foward to each day. Swelling and bruising on top of my foot still occurs daily, I have to use my crutches and boot on adaily basis. I think something is just not right I aslo think that I should have had therapy. Any suggestions or feedback? I am a 43 year old female.

Tuli's Double-Ribbed Pro heel cups are the most advancesd shock absorbing heel cups available today. The primary force of the heel strike is absorbed by the larger and higher waffle pattern while the lower and denser waffle pattern absorbs the high pressure and final force spike of heel strike. Perfect for sports activities.
