Re: Shattered Heel

Ashley I was in a car accident on August 16, 2004 and am now undergoing my 3rd surgery on my foot. I shattered my calcaneous/heel and tore the ligaments on my knee. My leg bone didn't break but it did cut through my foot. Everyone's injury is a little different. Sounds like you are doing better than I am if that is any consolation. I have a lot of pain and they are going to fuse my talar to my calcaneous. I limp and only can handle walking for about 30 min. at a time. I was told my recovery will take 18-24 months. Only then will we know if I have a permanent limp. Are they telling you something similar--18 to 24 months?
