Today I was sooooo ready to get the cast off and now its gone. I have a little clean, non furry leg minus the umteenth layers of dead skin. My vacocast came in earlier this week and I have had it in my mind that I would go into it and maybe walking even if a tiny bit today……NO!!!! I was much healthier in my mind….really I was! Dr. said I’m NWB in the boot for 2 more weeks. Crutches were supposed to be gone today…again in my mind! Well I have 2 more weeks NWB then I can start putting a little weight on it but always keep the crutches and that’s for another 2 weeks. Then I can start putting more weight but I’m soooo lucky I get to keep the crutches for a little more time….my guess would be another 2 weeks and then just then I can go to weight bearing for maybe the last few weeks. Do you think if I go back to the Dr and choose another door to see if I win maybe less crutch time????
Going to rest my clean shaven, small and incredibly sore leg…..it seems my brain needs a rest too from my huge wake up call when Dr said I am not there yet…um dang….what was I thinking??? He burst my walking bubble…. I’m over and out!!!!
