Ouch. Both my husband and brother-in-law had this same injury. One from snowboarding, one from mountain biking. Hope yours heals quickly. Take it easy, and don't skip those physical therapy exercises!

Your's looks like it needed surgery. They try and avoid surgery, but it's a much easier recovery. If it's a clean break they put you in a sling for 6 weeks. for the first week or so it fucking kills to take it out of the sling. after two weeks you can take it out but not do much with it and it feels weird so you want to put it back in. sleeping is a bitch for the first month. the first few weeks you have to sleep on your back and if you move at all you wake up immediately in pain. after that you'll accidently roll over and it sucks. it gradually gets better... after 6 weeks you're driving again. after 4 months you're doing push ups, but you still don't have range of motion. 6 months and it's good as new.

you just described my last 4 weeks. My break was a toss up between surgury or not, ended up leaving it heel on its own.But i hope your kidding with 4 month until you do push up, i play a lot of basketball in the summer that would suck a lot.
