Well my scheduled appointment to see my doctor got delayed because he caught pnemonia! Anyway, the substitute removed the staples @ 3 weeks and put me in a boot! However, he told me to treat it like a cast and sent me on my way. Had I known how difficult it is to sleep in, I would have prefered another cast.
A word of caution for newbies considering the “I Walk Free” crutch. With a boot on, the foot sticks out a lot more and going down stairs takes more care. It still doesn’t change my perspective on how great the crutch has been. Just was a bit of a drag…adding to my dissapointment as I was expecting to get cleared to PWB.
Here is a picture just after staple removal.
