CALCANEAL FRACTURE

I WAS IN A MVA JULY 30 2004, I SHATTERED MY RHEEL,BROKE MY ANKLE AND SUFFERED A TIB FIB PLATEU FRACTURE,I ALSO LACERATED MY SLEEN, LIVER AND MY PANCREATIC DUCT WAS SEVERED INTO. I UNDERWENT SX ON MY LEG AUGUST 20,2004. MY HEEL WAS MOLDED BACK INTO SHAPE AND I HAVE 2 SCREWS IN MY ANKLE AND 2 PLATES WITH SCREWS AND A DONAR BONE GRAPH FOR THE TIB/FIB PLAT FX.I UNDERWENT A TOTAL OF SIX SX AND ENDED UP GETTING A Y-N RUE PROCEDURE TO FIX MY PANCREATIC DUCT.MY FOOT FEEL LIKE IT HAS FUSED ON ITS ON BUT I STILL HAVE ALOT OF PAIN AND SWELLING. THE 20TH WILL BE A YEAR I AM A NURSE AND I RETURNED TO WORK 6 MONTHS AFTER MY ACCIDENT WHAT IS THE USUAL TIME FRAME FOR OPTIMAL RECOVERY AS FAR AS PAIN IS IT A YEAR OR IS IT LONGER? I HAVE HEARD DIFFERENT OPINIONS AND I WAS WONDERING WHAT YOURS IS? MY MUSCLES HAVE IMPROVED ALOT BUT MY CALVE MUSCLE IS STILL PRETTY SMALL ABOUT HOW LONG TILL IT WILL BUILD BACK UP?

Ankle braces go on fast and the athlete does the applying so there is no waiting in line to be taped. Super easy strap adjustment for a custom fit with solid ankle support.
