Healing Pain Normal or not? Please please help.
I fractured my calcaneus four weeks ago (non displaced, single fracture, no cast etc.) A week later had another appointment and was told to do three more weeks on crutches and then to weight bear as tolerated. This seemed odd to me because I didn't think bones healed in 4 weeks but I wasn't going to argue. Have been weight bearing since Tuesday. There is NO swelling whatsoever, and I can fully take my weight and walk without a limp. However, there is a strange pain in the lateral side of my heel, kind of burn-y and prickly. There is weird discomfort in the centre of the heel on the underside, as if there is a pebble stuck between my bone and skin, and my achilles is still very stiff. I couldn't, for example, run with it being the way it is.
Does this sound normal or do you think I'm not healed? I have another appointment due on Tuesday but I'm worried if I keep walking on it like I've been told to that I'll refracture it...
