calcaneus - to operate or not

Hi,

I broke my calcaneus bone Aug. 11 and am tentatively scheduled for surgery the first week of Sept. It is a multiple break with displacement. I'm curious about the experience of folks who have healed without surgery as well as those who have healed with surgery and why they chose one option over the other. As a very active walker (three miles a day), I'm very concerned about my ability to be active again. Any feedback would be appreciated.
