    Unhappy calcaneal fracture

    I have been suffering from a calcaneal fracture for 5-months. I am beyond frustration and was glad to find this board with similar situations.

    After an MRI, I was casted on 04/04/03 for a calcaneal fracture. After 6-weeks and a second MRI, it was determined that my fracture didnít heal. My dr. casted me for another 6-weeks and ordered an EBI bone stimulator for me. After a total of 12-weeks and another MRI my fracture showed some healing but not enough. My dr. decided at the end of June to put me in a cam walker but remain non-weight bearing with crutches. I have been this way ever since. My last MRI on 08/12/03 showed the fracture with bone marrow edema and fluid around the posterior tibialis. I was ordered to have a bone scan of the nakle (showed no active osteoarthritis but the active fracture). I had blood work which came back negative. I am having an EMG on 09/12/03 (not sure what that will do). I am seeing a second opinion dr. on 09/15/03 at the request of my current Osteo.

    I am confused and I am not sure what to expectÖ.I think it is important to mention that my fracture in not displaced. I hear that this is a good thing??

    Any words of wisdom would be greatly appreciated!!
