heal soreness

Posted by joyce b on 5/17/02 at 11:04 (084297)

I broke 3 bones in my left foot and was in a cast for 6 weeks. Now my heal seems to be the problem now...I can't put weight on my foot cause my heal hurts so bad...What do you suggest? I use a pad in my shoe, but it still hurts

Hi Joyce:

I wouls suggest a course of physical therapy to help allevite some of the discomfort. I would also suggest an anti-inflammatory medication such as Advil for discomfort. I hope this helps.
