 Broken Fib boot hurts
Sarah Clayton    7:59pm Jul 24 2017

Hi,

I'm just over 3 wks post accident Canada Day (July 1st) (road bike slipped on wet boardwalk). I didn't need surgery,
and have a stable (spiral) fibula fracture.
I was in a splint cast for one week before seeing orthopedic surgeon. She put me in an air cast
and said come back in 6 wks (7 wks from accident) for followup xray.
She told me nwb until July 31, so until 4 plus wks post accident.
This boot bothers me a lot, especially sleeping! I loosen the straps and try to deflate a bit but it's just so awful.
Anyway, any tips of how to get through the next 3 wks including how I start putting weight on it and when I can take
the air boot off for sleeping would be helpful. I only see her Aug 18th.
Sarah
