I have doubts on behalf of my wife. Three days back, she met with an accident and got her foot injured. Her heel got severe damage and after diagnosis doctor said the following. Left heel pad avulsion injury, communicated fracture calcaneum left foot and medial malleolus fracture of left leg. They did a surgery for her and took CT scan and x-ray. We have the wound pictures also. My question is that, is there any complication in that injury? Will there be any need of further surgery? If required, I will upload the pictures of CT scan and wound photos.
