Well clinic squeezed me in to enable me to get a new cast. The cast I have from surgery feels extremely tight and uncomfortable. Like its too narrow for my foot. Was unsure if this was just normal post surgery pain though. From reading other posts some people seem to have the burning pain for quite some time and others don’t seem to suffer at all. I wander if the type of immobilization has an effect on this. For example full cast vs boot vs back slab ect. Was seen by lovely lady in the cast room. They really do look after me in there. Most of them know me by name had a quite a few casts over the years. Do have tendency to crash motorbikes ect.
She looked at my post surgery cast and to my relief said no wander I was in pain. She made comment along the line that surgeons good at surgery however not so when it comes to plaster.
Once the cast had been removed it gave me a chance to see my operation site. I couldn’t take of the dressing because only 5 days post op. But from the size it became apparent that the surgeon had managed the op pecantanousely another made up word by me. I really can’t spell if you hadn’t already noticed.
Anyway nice new fibre glass back slab. Half the weight half the discomfort. Ideal for my flight to Cyprus on Saturday.
