Question Calcaneus Fracture

Hi All,
I have a calcaneus fracture of my foot from falling into a concrete drainage culvert. The ER Doc put it into a cast last Thusday 9/10. I am going to see an Ortho doc tomorrow. What questions should I ask about treatments, cast, segeway rental and/or anything else.
Thanks any input would be helpfull

Re: Calcaneus Fracture


I just noticed your post today and see that I have missed some from others. There is a feature on the board for
" Private Messaging" . To activate it you (1) click on "My Settings" (2) click on "Settings and Options, (3) Put a check next to "Enable Private Messaging". That way I will see a notice as soon as I log in without searching the threads

Sorry I didn't reply before your Ortho visit. If you (or anyone else who posted) still have questions please post them and "PM" me.
