Five Days Post Op

Well, had to go get another splint/cast as I got the first one wet in the shower.  Rookie mistake.  Dr. said she would put me in a boot next Wed, eight days out.  Am generally just lying around - having trouble sleeping at night but other than than that, mostly OK. Getting around on crutches a little more challenging than I thought.

  1. What makes the crutches so difficult with this injury, to me, is the inability to rest the injured leg on the ground due to the plantar-flexed position. An ordinary broken leg or ankle (which I’ve had!) is a piece of cake in comparison. Get to the boot as soon as you can and your experience will improve dramatically. Hope its this coming Wednesday.

  2. If you have a choice, get a boot that can “hinge” — maybe even the fancy high-tech waterproof VacoCast that gunner got!
