Heel Fracture

I fractured my right heel 12/20/09. My right leg is in a below the knee splint. Doc said that I can drive but no pressure on the heel. I use my toes on the injured foot to press the gas pedal. My calf muscle (have not used muscles in a month)has a burning sensation for an hour after driving then sore. Is this normal? Thanks

    Sounds like your poor calf muscle needs some serious conditioning. The buring and soreness are just symptoms of overuse…like working out a muscle to fatigue and you feel buring and pain. You need to do some conditioning to improve your calf muscle and endurance for driving and walking.
