Re: Life after a calcaneus fracture?

You may never wear heals. I've tried on cowboy boots, and it feels like I am walking down hill. A small heal maybe. After this you may be really into comfortable shoes.

Seems people start bearing weight 8-12 weeks. I was 12. I found walker to be more stable then crutches. Then cane, then nothing. Within a month or so I could walk without cane, but still used it for a couple months.
