I got my second fiberglass cast this afternoon. This one required that I bring my toes up to 90 degrees. I have never felt such tightness before. It took a good 15 or 20 minutes just to loosen it up enough to get up to 90, and then some will power to hold it there while it was casted in that position. Not the most fun I have ever had. There is some odd attachment to the bottom that helps keep the weight back on my heel, and I am told to start putting a little weight on it and walking in as normal a stride as I can. With the help of the crutches of course. So that is good news. It is nice to be making progress and moving towards the rehab phase.
It is very tricky to try to walk with this crazy thing that is attached to the bottom of my cast. Partly because I am nervous to walk at all and put any weight on it at all, and partly because I have not walked at all in a month, and I feel unsure. It’s going to take some figuring out for sure.
