Fractured my right calcaneus on 6/23/09 (mtn. biking accident), surgery on 7/10/09 ( plate with 7 screws). It is now about 8 months after surgery. Just wondering if there is anyone out there that has had a similar injury that's a year or more into recovery. Right now I still have slight pain, somewhat of a stiff big toe and sort of a tight plantar fascia. I had about 26 weeks of physical therapy and now go to the gym quite often doing various foot strengthening exercises as much as I can tolerate. I normally am a very active person - - mtn. bike, road bike, rollerblade, tennis, ski and NOW because of this injury, have become a swimmer. (1000 yards at least 4 - 5 times a week). Right now, a little anxious - - keep wondering if this injury will EVER heal to the point where I will be able to do my other activities in the future. Realize I probably won't be able to do them to the extreme I used to.
So.... if there's someone out there that can offer some encouragement, it would be greatly appreciated. I'm 62 years young and want to keep going till I'm 92.
