My cast issues have resolved on their own pretty much. I am in this cast at a neutral position for 12 more days and then I will get my boot at about 4.5 weeks post op. I’m not sure what my weight bearing status will be when I get the boot. This surgeon say something different each time. He did say he wants to check how good I am with crutches when he puts the boot on me. I’ve been using crutches all along so I’m not sure what he meant.
Anyway, I’ve had a hard couple of days. I’ve been off work a month, can’t care for my kids how I want, etc. I know this will come to an end but I’ve just been in this funk of feeling sorry for myself. I can’t seem to snap out of it. I’ve also started obsessing about rerupturing and am probably reading TOO many horror stories about it since I’ve had free time. I’m just venting and don’t make a very good injured patient. Any tips to get out of the funK?
