2 Weeks Post-Op

Two weeks post op, I went and had my splint removed, and had a plaster cast put on. It was fun to have my kids with me, because they got to pick out the colors. Ended up with an orange and blue cast in honor of my Alma-Mater, Boise State University. I was actually glad to have a cast on, because I was so worried about a misstep that I was overly cautious and worried about every twitch and every bump. With the cast I’ve been able to wiggle my toes throughout the day and although that’s not much, it is something. I’ve got two weeks in the cast, and the doctor said that I could get in in Boot (NWB), and he would give me permission to take it off when sitting down to get a slight ROM. That was much more encouraging than the additional two weeks of another plaster cast. So far so good, and it’s been great reading all of the other blogs that there will be a day that I will have a better sense of normalcy.
