Did the fracture go into the joint?

Joint fusion is like absolute last resort, because they don't work very often. And if they get rid of the local pain, they'll usually cause other problems like knee or hip pain.

Cartilage needs movement in order to get the nutrients it needs, so get your foot mobilized everyday. Put it in hot water and get someone to pull on your heel and do like figure 8s on the joint.
