My wife suffered injury to foot with calcaneal fracture. Orthopaedician gave us option of both surgical n conservative management. Plus her swelling isnt subsiding even after taking medicines round the clock n leg elevation. She isn't able to bear weight at all on that foot. It already has been three days. Respected doctors please give ur valuable opinion.

Fracture calcaneum Joint depression plus:Can be accepted Lateral spread: Very little: can be accepted Overall conservative treatment may give a good result. Swelling is a problem in these cases It can be painful and take two weeks or so to resolve. No weight bearing Strict lower limb elevation and active toe movements Well padded posterior pop slab Change after one week After two weeks cast can be applied At 6 weeks pop removal and check xray A walking cast may be needed after that for another 6weeks Analgesics Chymoral

Thank you doctor

Very sorry to hear that. Both the angles -Bohlers angle and Gissane angle is maintained but better to get a CT SCAN(SANDERS CLASSIFICATION) Better to decide based on CT but looks it can be very much managed conservatively with a cast once swelling subsides. Strict non weigh bearing walking till fracture consolidation (around 4 to 5 weeks)

Thank you doctor

Its calcaneum fracture....give a slab and non weight bearing walking with walker...it is not essential for surgery...can be well managed with casting....once the swelling goes down can apply cast....after 6 weeks remove cast and check for tenderness...if there is pain then reapply cast or make her walk with aircast for 6 weeks....
