I call bullcrap. Odds are that one calcaneus takes most of the impact in a fall. Ask me how I know. Why would someone with a broken foot need O2?

"Odds are" care to make it interesting, doc? I have a DVD and a stack of bills here on my desk that says youre clueless. Bet me $1000. Please...

BTW when you are getting morphine in your IV, it slows breathing. O2 levels can drop.

Still want to help, Dr Bombay?

My doctor said that in 90% of the cases he sees like mine, surgery is required. I was lucky because although there is a network of fissures in both heels, all the parts are in place. The right heel was worse. He told me to stay off 'em for 10-12 weeks. It has been 9 weeks and I can walk. Left heel has virtually no pain. Right heel is tender. I went back to work Weds, but I dont do a great deal of walking at work

You said shattered both heels. That would take a fall of about 40 feet and land on concrete with the same weight and angle on both feet. You wouldn't be able to walk for a year. How long were you on morphine?

50% of falls >20 feet are fatal, antifart. You are in WAY over your head

Now I know why your WTC posts are so whacked out. You make chit up as you go along

A few of my friends fell 35 feet and came away from it without a limp. I fell 26 feet and broke my calcaneus. Once you break your calcaneus you stop calling it a heel. It's technically part of the ankle and something you never recover from. I was on crutches for 6 months and 30 years later still have to walk on my toes.

I only talk about things I know to be true.
