Well, i went to the hospital yesterday,looking forward to seeing wot my ankle would look like. And when they took the cast off,it looked pretty good to be honest. Alot better than i expected it to be like. Than i was hoping to have a good chat with one of the doctors about all the question’s i had to ask him,as its all still new to me. But the doctor that saw me was a waste of space! Like he was just standing in,being a fake doctor. When i’d ask him something he’d egnore me or just say ummmmm. I got more info out of the man who re-plastered my leg!!!!! The doctor did say he wants me back in plaster for 8 weeks,which was a big shock. As i have read so many people have got into the aircast boot pretty quick after the surgery. He agreed to put me in one in 4 weeks,as i’m going on holiday at christams. Could someone please tell me the advantages an disadvantages of both cast an air boot? Like can i stand up with both feet with out crutches with the boot on???? Etc???
I really think this was VERY poor service from the NHS,since i have done the injury. The only time i have felt my best intrest’s where with them was when i was in theater! The rest of the time i feel like i’m part of a very poor production line! Has any one gone through a ATR with a privet hospital or something like that? I wonder how different the service received would be????

Could people possible say where i should be with my road to recovery at 7 weeks? Walking running an dancing would be a wishful answer lol.

An i hope u like the photo’s. Feed back is welcome.

Thanx an good luck all.
