Broken Heel Healing

Posted by Colleen T on 4/10/02 at 17:01 (079117)

How long should it take for a broken heel to heal. My mother broke her heel in two places over 6 months ago. She was diagnosed with rsd before changing doctors. Her latest Dr. says all is going fine, but she cannot walk on it yet. Most bone breaks heal in about 6-8 weeks ... this one is still painful and she absolutely can put NO pressure on it. Does this sound right to you? I've got a parent who WILL NOT go to the Dr. unless she feels like she is going to die. ( it took 2 days to go find out the heel was broken). Any info. is helpful.

Thank you,

Colleen

Let me mention... that the Dr. Who diagnosed RSD was incorrect. She had no disease that causes wounds not to heal correctly. FYI... forgot to add that part in..
