I had one of my "spells" where I get disorientated and managed to fall on some steps and suffered a calcaneus (heel) fracture. Oh well, might as well add to all the other pain :)
At the ER the nurse told me I could take the "boot" off at home if I was lying down which I'm told by ortho was completely wrong, it always has to be on so for 4 days no wonder I was in complete agony!
Ortho put a bandage on then a soft boot then a larger heavier boot on, oh boy does this hurt.
Anyone gone through this type of injury?
I have crutches and have to keep foot off the ground, pain is awful but I do have vicodin.
Is it normal, probably silly question, for this pain to be worse 6 days later? never had a fracture before.
I was told to ice and always elevate foot then put boots right back on.
Thank you for any advice.
