Ummm, you would have been better off to have just had a complete break. those heal up rather quickly. This shattered bone can't be splinted, I can't wrap it tight enough to do any good, because that will stop blood flow.

You are going to just have to live with it, and walk on your toes, and avoid putting any weight on that heel for at least a year.
profound words, it was over 10 years before I could walk on that heel w/o giving in to it.... yet today, 30 years later, I still have events where I loose my balance because that foot wants to collapse.
