The Boot is Here……

I have had the boot for 24 hours now and I love the mobility that I have now!!!!! It takes me awhile to get around and my heel hurts alot but I can move!!!! Yipppeeeee!!!! Sleeping without a 20 pound cast is great too! Wasn’t much atrophy to the leg either but the skin has chipped away a great deal……

  1. I get the booot in less than 2 weeks. I can take it off apparantly and have a warm bath. can you put your full weight on. So glad for you to be able to move around.

  2. My skin was horrible, too, when they took the cast off. I found that Gold Bond Healing ointment really helped a lot. I just put it on my foot (avoiding the incision area) and put a sock over it at night. It’s kind of greasy, but it really did the trick.

  3. what kind of boot please? In uk you get this thing heavy as cast? Is yours an aircast? Was thinking of buying so would love to know!

  10. The ankle and foot will swell especially if your up and walking on it alot, a warm epsom salt soak does wonders for the swelling.
