Shattered Heel (calcaneus)

I've been reading the articles about the shattered heels (calcaneus). I was in a car accident July 9, 2004. When the paramedics arrived at the scene they said I was sitting outside my car. My car was in such bad condition that they said the only way I could be outside the car was if I was ejected. Well, this couldn't be because I had severe seatbelt burns on my chest and lap. The paramedic did say I kept telling them there had been a man that helped me, but there was no one in the car w/me when i was driving. They couldn't find evidence that someone had been in the car w/me, but they said they didn't know how someone could have pulled me out of the car. The floorboard on my side was bent up above my seat so my legs would have been pinned. I believe this "man" I was talking about was my Guardian Angel who pulled me from my car. My injuries include a broken L5 vertebrae in my back, a shattered heel and ankle (calcaneus), and a bone fractured behind my eye. I will be wearing a back brace or 3-4 months, luckily won't need surgery. I had to have reconstructive surgery on my heel July 26th, 2004. I am currently trying to recover from that. To my surprise the ankle is the most painful of all my injuries. This heel injury is still new to me and I'm still trying to learn as much about it as I can. I would appreciate any information from anyone who has any knowledge or experience. Any tips on pain relief techniques would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Chelsea
