non-displaces fracture of the body of the talus

Hi. Could someone tell me how this is treated?? I'm a workers comp case and was originally diagnosed with a ruptured peroneal tendon,a torn CFL and a fracture to the navicular. My original accident was in May 04. I had my surgery to fix the tendons and ligaments in November 04. Workers comp wanted more proof that I had the fracture. Had bone scan and it proved it--they still wanted more. I had MRI and they still wanted more. I finally had a CT Scan this past week and the results were "linear lucency to the lateral aspect of the body of the talas which is suspicious for a nondisplaced fracture".
So....now that its been almost a year, how is this injury treated?? I haven't been able to work since my surgery due to the pain, my foot is still swollen and turns purple if I sit too long--so I pretty much spend my time on the couch with my foot propped up or in bed. HELP!!!!!

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.
