Had my cast removed today. Did my homework and brought all of the info to order a vaco boot. The nurse removed the cast and the doctor came in and evaluated my incision, and ROM. I Had my husband with me all set to help me insist on my choice of boots. Then the sinister smile and he said ok see me in 4 weeks. I asked ok what boot do you recommend and he cackled-no boot. I freaked out even begged and he firmly said no. my foot could flex to a little over 90 degrees and he said what do you want a club foot. He scheduled PT for three times a week as soon as possible. The nurse called around and got an appointment for 2 !/2 weeks from tomorrow. When I got into the waiting room I called our local PT that treated our family in the past and the head PT said come in on Wednesday- I will take care of you. So here I sit giving the evil eye to the cats. Everyone better stay away. I guess there goes my beach days for this summer. Can you believe it I have read about only three people on this blog who went from cast to boot and here I am entering into their little group. Ughhh!
