Does anyone know if there is a standard recovery time table for this injury?

Re: Calcaneus Fracture Recovery time

Mark,

There is no standard time for recovery as there are so many variables. I just passed 6 years after my surgery (internal fixation with a plate) and I'm still getting better & better. I remember reading somewhere about a study that concluded that 70% of calcaneal fracture patients experience maximum amount of healing where it gets as good as it's gonna get between 4 1/2 & 6 years after injury.

Tell us more about your situation...

Rob

Re: Calcaneus Fracture Recovery time

Do you still have the hardware in your foot or have you had it removed?

Re: Calcaneus Fracture Recovery time

Hello, my dr. tells me that after surgery to put in plate & screws will have 3 months of non weight bering, then physical therepy, total about a year.
I expect full recovery, will do exacly what dr. wants, no smoking, no weight on foot.
Shattered my heel 6/11, surgery scheduled for 7/3.
I fell backwards from 5 feet onto cement while picking oranges, shoot.
I was very active till this injury & wonder if day after surgery will be as painfull as initial injury, can anybody out there tell us?

Hope you have a full recovery.

Thank you,
Good luck!
