hello doc,i fractured my calcaneus on may 9, 2003 jumping off a wall and landing on concrete. i went to the doctor who saw me and said he said it will take 2 months from date of injury to heal. i forgot to ask him about any other foot support i would need like a splint or something after the 2 months. i don’t need surgery, doc said i was lucky. he also said the heel is displaced too.
