Re: calcaneus - to operate or not

Get all the info you can then make your choice. Good Luck
Fell last week. Broke heel bone. Thinking of opting out of surgery which seems to be a doctor protocol. Am 66, in excellent condition besides, and not going to stress this with surgery. Keeping foot up for next 3 months and will see doctor shortly so she can read me the mri. Not in severe pain at present. I know she thinks surgery, but her thoughs are not mine. Any suggestions, ideas, help appreciated. thank you
