 Re: 2nd ortho visit update

Yes, some people are very rude! And it's hard to work out a good reaction when you're so surprised by the other person's actions.

Well done for coping with the long leg cast.

I should explain that I have a problem with my nervous system translating continuous pressure on my ankle bones into pain - making wearing a cast a real problem. It's true that surgery carries some extra risks, but it was the right choice for my fracture. I do have a scar, but it's just a thin line up the outside of my ankle, barely noticeable, and not something I was worried about anyway - returning to full ankle function for long-distance running was the only thing I cared about (that and not being in severe pain from the cast for several weeks!).
