I shattered my talus in an accident 12 years ago and spent 2 years trying to het it healed. One interesting factoid I learned is that caffeine has 2 deleterious effects on bone growth. First, it inhibits calcium absorption and second, it's a vaso-constrictor and will shut down the micro-capillaries that are trying to get blood to what is already the least blood saturated bone in your body. Go cold turkey for the healing process.
