Fractured Calcaneus..need info plz!

My name is TJ and I'm a college student. I fell from about 15-20 ft on 8/10/09 and fractured my calcaneus and talus. I had surgery the next morning and had a plate and 6 screws put in my foot. My OS also told me my foot was non weight bearing for 3 months. I'm an athlete at my school and so I have athletic trainers helping with my recovery and doing some minor PT. It is now 8 weeks post injury and I have good motion in my foot, and its killing me to be so inactive since I'm a very active person. I have to have another surgery 3 months after the injury to remove the plate and screws. I was wondering if anyone knew what the recovery time for that surgery might be and if anyone has any info or advice for me. Even some exercises or vitamins to speed up recovery some would be great. Thank you very much.

T.J.

My recovery was about 2 weeks (suture removal) but I continued weight bearing during this time. I had two screws removed from a calcaneus/subtalar joint fusion. Hang in there! It gets better.
