 Re: 2nd ortho visit update
dcb    2:22am Mar 3 2017

Hi Ashleigh, great that the fibula hasn't split further. (I was very happy to have surgery and get out of cast earlier, and would definitely have chosen surgery over a full leg cast if those had been the two options - having a below-knee cast for two weeks and a boot for another six weeks was bad enough - but everyone is different).

Not had strangers trying to sign my cast, but it doesn't surprise me. Other things people have reported include being sat in a pub garden with their casted leg propped up on a chair and having a stranger pick the casted leg up and move it to get past!

Fibula Fx lat. malleolus Weber B 12 June 2015
ORIF plate 18 June. Cast problems (allodynia) so boot from 25th but NWB.
25 July start PWB in boot, 7 Aug PWB without boot. 14th Aug few steps FWB.
9 Sept 10-steps jog 25 Sept: PT says go run!
