Re: Calcaneus fracture

at the age of 36 on july 4 2002 i shattered my left calcaneus... (at least 7 pieces ) it frankly sucked !!! and anybody out there that has had it happen knows .. at the hospital that day i left thinking that i was going to need surgery to repair it ... however the follwing monday i went to see a orthopedic surgeon that the hospital recomended and he took some additional x-rays and even though the break was very bad he elected to not do any surgery ... the reason was my sub talor joint was still lined up and he did not think that surgery could improve my future range in motion..
after 2 years and a couple months i still deal with tollerable pain and discomfort ...some days are better than others .. and i believe my range of motion is still improving ... i would guess that right now my range of motion is betweeen 85 and 90 percent ...
good luck i hope that it all works out .
