... Hi. I had my heel screwed back together in January, so coming up on 1-year anniversary.

... Hi Tonyb If you don't mind me asking how old are you? I had the similar break as you whereby the talus shattered my right calcaneus, 13 screws and a plate. I had my op on the 4th of Jan this year and I'm currently using crutches, no boot, I am able to drive and put a little weight on my foot. I am also able to use one crutch and the boot from time to time. I do take an... (11 replies)
... It's possible but honestly unlikely. With the force of the talus being driven in the calcaneus you are guaranteed to experience a significant amount of cartilage damage. You are very likely to develop arthritis in the subtalar joint. Probably pretty soon after you start walking in the right foot but even the left is likely to be affected after a number of years.

... Don't know if this will help or not, but I think we are at the same point in our recovery. I had surgery on Nov. 7th. My heel was in many more pieces and they also had to do a fusion, so the injury is a little different. I have been in a boot for 5 weeks. ... (14 replies)

... It is a long recovery. My pain started to get better about the 10th month, and probably about as good as it gets around 18 months.

This injury varies between people, so hope for the best, but just realize this is a life... (14 replies)

There, they were surprised I wasn't walking yet, and basically... (14 replies)
