I fell down from stairs on 11 July 2015 and got fracture. After examining, my orthopedic doctor diagnosed that it is heel bone fracture in both legs. (Intra-articular Calcaneal fracture. I have lost subtler movements in heel and ankle area.
He simply told me to walk on toes for 20 minutes twice a day (in the morning and in the evening). He did not prescribe any medicine other than a pain killer. But he told that the pain killer to be taken only when there is unbearable pain.
He told me that it will take one year for recovery. (At present, I can walk very slowly, not fast). I cannot walk on toes as doctor prescribed.
I want to have second opinion for this. Does all intra-articular calcaneal fractures require surgery. (Why my doctor didn't recommend surgery right now and simply told me to practice to walk on toes ?)
Please help me in this regard.
