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!
