Re: Calcaneus fracture/waiting for surgery
I would be very careful! I shattered mine into 14 pieces 6/4/11. I had surgery 2 weeks later but had a semi-hard cast before surgery. I too did not want to damage anything any worse than it was. I was extra careful and kept my foot elevated as much as possible. My family was VERY supportive and understanding. Maybe they should read some of these posts and talk to your doc. This is very sericous and you need to treat it as such. Good Luck. Patience and Strength!!!
