Foot & Ankle Problems Board Index


I shattered my heel 10 months ago. The bone was broken in many pieces, however, I did not get surgery. Basically all that was done was an ace bandage and on crutches (non-weight bearing) for three months. At the end of the three months it was still very painful to walk on. I continued to see the doctor once a month for another three months. Ten months later I still have some problems walking. When I first stand after either sitting or sleeping the first few steps are very painful. I still cannot walk without a limp unless I conciously make myself. My foot is not as flexible as the other. When I am on unlevel surfaces for a while I experience pain in walking afterwards. My doctor told me I can expect a two year healing time. I'm not certain if I can expect it to ever be any less difficult or painful to walk on that foot again.
