It has been four weeks since my injury, although I’m only 3 weeks post-op. I am going a little stir crazy and longing to put my foot on the ground and shower like a normal person. The cast sleeve I use is fine, but I still have to keep the leg draped over one side.
But when I start to feel down or bummed out, I just remind myself this is all temporary. I remind myself of the next milestone in my treatment and go from there. Right now that milestone is Wednesday March 10th. Off with the cast and into the boot and PWB.
By the way, I just can’t believe how tired I am after work. I have never been one to go to bed early, but by 9:30pm, I’m ready for bed! Healing takes a lot of energy!
