Constant pain with calcaneous fracture
My husband crushed his calcaneous (multiple bones in his left foot in a motor vehicle accident 6/2002), broke the bone above his ankle, his lateral thigh muscle is damaged and the nerve in the lateral thigh muscle is dead. He has a plate & 5 screws in his leg & cadaver bones were crushed & placed in his heel & 1 plate & 8 screws in his heel. The scar bothers him even to touch.
Majority of foot pain is in his heel. His entire life has changed.
He is on Wellbutrin for depression but nothing else. We are searching for ways to manage the pain.
Shall we go to a podiatrist or a pain clinic or ???.
Do you have any suggestions for things to try to improve the pain (cortisone shots, etc).
We are looking for any and all solutions.
