    Default Any one had a Broken left heel ( Calcaneus )...I do!

    Hello All

    I feel off a latter 21 days ago and heading into surgery Thursday for screws in my left heel bone.

    I have 2015 RT SE6...so I do not need the left foot to change gears.


    Anyone else had a bad left foot?

    How long were you off your Spyder?


    Thanks for any input........This sitting in a chair and waiting is miserable!!!


    Wishing I was on my Spyder!!

    Genradman, I smashed mine and was out of service for 3 months. Had an air boot that help a ton. Good luck on your recovery PT will help a lot.

    My left leg is amputated just below the knee and I can't wear a prosthetic leg anymore. I ride almost every day.

    Broken tibia and ankle last June... didn't ride the rest of the summer (except the lawn tractor). Winter kept me in the four wheeled cage. Back to riding normally this spring. Manual 2010 RS... ankle working great. Patience with rehab. You'll get there.

    Genradman,

    Did the ortho dr. mention your weight bearing status after surgery, like weight bearing as tolerated, partial weight bearing, non weight bearing. That would give you a better idea of how long you'll need to be careful when applying pressure to the foot. Will you be leaving the same day as the surgery, or soon thereafter? If you are, a PT will check out your walking, and see what device you may need to assist with walking, if any. I'm just glad I've never broken a bone, and only deal with people who have.

    Heal well, heel quickly! The second heel is for heel strike, which is part of a normal gait (walking pattern). I think that may be out for a little bit.

    Good luck with the surgery.

    I broke my left heel also, but not as badly as you did though. I was in an air cast and rode with it.
