Burning question about Calcaneus Surgery
As much as im trying to deal with this. i must admit that im a newbie here. about two month ago i fell down a flight of stairs, and i tried to but my foot out to catch my fall and i landed in a acquired position. As a result, i shattered my heel bone. i was hospitalized, and waited two weeks until the swelling went down for my surgery to proceed. its 6 weeks now since my surgery in which i had 6 pins, a plat, and a bone grapht. the reason for my concern is that im still very swollen and i have this horrible BURNING sensation in my foot.
Is this normal? what else should i expect? how long do you think in till the swelling starts going down? is the asking in my heel normal? and if so how long will i experience it and is this BURNING feeling around the area that they did the surgery going to continue and why?
I know these are allot of question for some of you, but i'm really just trying to deal with this the best that i can, i used to be very active, and right in the midst of my early 30s i'm being told that i'm going to loose my movement on my foot and that its going to take a life time to completely heal.
i really need some support some optimistic views
