It's been 4-1/2 months since I broken my heel. The bottom of my heel was shattered into little pieces. My doctor says my bones have "knitted" together enough for me to put weight down. I tried but it felt like I stepped on a bunch of broken glass!! The pain level was a 10. I immediately stopped putting weight down and my foot hurt for 3 days. I am afraid to try again and wonder if I should.
