fractured heel

(4 discussions)

been in cast, bed and wheelchair for first week.
can’tdo the crutches as I have cerebral palsy (but normallyam able to walk) doc gave me vicodin but the problem isrelentless spasticity in foot. I normally take no rx drugs, but thinking in this case maybe some muscle relaxers? I triedwine and light beer which worked for about 30 minutes, but I doubt I should just drink all day.
as it is, people mistake me for drunkeness already with the cp. I am afraid the spasms are preventing healing or even making things worse.
could it be?
it’s driving me crazy.
and I suspect it’s a long road ahead. Thank you.

    1-2 tiny pills really took the edge off. ditched vicodin altogether.but now it feels like a blister has formed between heel and achilles. is that possible?next appt with ortho. not for 10 more days.would it comprimise the cast if I made a little holebehind the ankle to see what’s up in there?thank you.

    I recommend you call your doctor first and discuss altering the cast before doing anything.

    I am sorry about your situation. Do you have a neurologist? If so, ask about what medications might benefit you. Good luck
