Fracture checkup.
I have a hairline fracture at the base of calcaneus in my right foot. My orthopaedic doctor in Bangalore attached a below knee slab. I have been asked to rest for one month and take Orocal tablets( calcium ). Also he asked me to visit after 10 days i.e today. But I am in Mumbai. What do I need to do now. It only pains if I walk and now the pain has reduced.
