Broken heel 6 years ago

Posted by Linda P on 4/11/04 at 16:41 (148701)

Dear Doctor,

I broke my heel about 6 years ago when I feel down a flight of stairs. My doctor says that it has healed but I experience quite a bit of pain. It feels like a hammer. I have not been to the doctor in two years and have gone to see 5 specialists over that time. Do you have any suggestions to lower or alleviate the pain? I do take Vicodin when I have tremendous pain. As I have a high threshold for pain, this only happens on seldom occasions. Walking and standing for more than 30 minutes is intolerable.

What did the MRI shows. It is very important to determine the cause. Were you told you have nerve damage, joint damage, ligament and or tendon damage?
