Hello i need some informatiom please help. My husband fractured his heel june 13,2012 we just now seen a real doctor cause of medical issues anyway i see where most people are having surgery where we are not his doctor says hes fine but he cant walk hes still on crutches or wheel chair and his foot gets so swollen every day what can we do please help thank you teri sherman
I would do one of two things...either go back to the doctor and INSIST he either explain exactly WHY he thinks the heel is OK when it is clearly not getting any better - AND get him to give you a time-frame on how long before he is able to walk unaided.
or secondly, get a second opinion.
Hope this helps
