Patient Comments: Broken Foot - Treatment

What types of treatment did you receive when you broke your foot? Did you wear a cast or Reese shoe?

Comment from: june rosenwasser, 75 or over Female (Patient) Published: October 18

I twisted my foot going down 2 steps, I did not see the step and it caused a fracture between the foot and the heel. I was put in a boot for a month, but it still hurts. One doctor suggested surgery to remove the protruding bone, the other said nothing can be done. I do not know what to do.
