Foot pain

I fractured my heal bone in 4 places. I never had an operation, as the doctors said it would be o.k. Its been 4 months now, and i’m still in alot pain and suffering from pain up the back of my heal and the outside, top part of my ankle and a little on the underneath/arch of my foot.Can you advise what I should be buying as an ankle support, I was a builder before and still need to be now.Many ThanksJonathan

    As you have probably figured out, 4 months is not enough time for this to feel great. I would have told you it could take 6 months to a year, even without seeing this. As far as ankle braces go, most have the heel area cut out and without examining you, I can’t say if this would aggravate your foot. A silicone heel lift (e.g. Silipos or Bauerfeind) might be helpful though. I suggest you discuss this with your doctor further.
