Re: Non-Displaced chip fracture of Anterior Calcaneus (heel) Questions

I shattered my calcaneous and talus, and was in to bad of shape for surgery, so its a little differant. I hadm to keep my foot elevated for 3 months, until I started walking on it. But you are walking on yours, so its differant. I also wore a compression sock. But swelling is good for healing, so need to talk to doc.

I slept with my walking cast on, until almost 12 weeks. Propped up on a pillow. Untuck sheets at the bottom of the bed.

Its hard to take,but need to wait and see, and listen to docs.

And yes, unfortuantely you may devlop arthitis, in the near future.
