Can you better describe what's going on in your foot?
Customer: replied 8 years ago.

if i stand on my foot too long (more than 30 mins) it begins to swell more than it is already swollen and sharp pain shoots through the area around my ankle it is always slightly swollen

Has this been evaluated by a physician?
Customer: replied 8 years ago.

I went to the doctor in 2000/2001 and they did an x-ray two doctors looked at the x-ray one said that i had a hair line fracture on my heel the other doctor said that i had achelles tendinitous. I was treated for the tendinitous and sent home. I went back to the same doctor and asked for a reexamination but was told that i was already daignosed but the problem was still there. now its 8 years later and I went to a new doctor who told me that he found bone fragments in the new x-ray they took of my foot and that i need a mri to get a better idea of how much damage has been done to my foot. I know i have bone fragments in my foot because the first doctor did not treat the hair line fracture so it healed wrong and is now chipping away in my foot

Are the fragments in the calcaneus--the heel bone?
