Promoting bone healing?

To make a long story short, I had a skiing accident over the weekend and I'm left with a broken lower tibia, some hairline fractures in the ankle, and some ligament damage.

I'm in a cast for 6 weeks, and at the end of 6 weeks there's a possibilty for another cast or even surgery depending on how it has healed. The nonly thing the doctor recommended to promote bone healing is Tums for the calcium.

I'm wondering if there's anything else I can be taking or anything else I can do to get through this healing process as efficiently as possible. Any tips?

Lesnar is a savage and I, BCooper, am his biggest fan. Destruction tried to tell me Randy was too old, but I wouldnt listen.

Yes, I lost a sig bet.

You can concentrate on healing. You know, the whole mind over matter thing?

Or just you know. Take it easy, keep off of it and stuff.

I had surgery for a very similar injury 10 months ago and in the hospital they gave me calcium supplements. I still take them but I don't remember to do it every day. I think they have more calcium than Tums.

My husband says get lots of vitamin B for beer lol.

Yeah I was thinking there's gotta be something more potent than Tums to take, as far as calcium. I was just wondering if there was something else I could be taking on top of that.

Don't forget your vitamin D. Without it, calcium doesn't do you much good, and not all antacids have it.
