 Re: Fracture clinic visit-leg put in complete full leg cast
dcb    3:13pm Nov 8 2017

Hi Harry,

Glad for you that the swelling has gone down enough for you to be fitted with a proper plaster.

The cast does get a -little- lighter once it has dried - takes a couple of days with the large ones.

Time scale sounds standard for casting with no operation. I considered myself lucky to have mine operated on (plated) and be out of the cast sooner, but it's swings and roundabouts I guess.

Remember to keep the leg up as much as possible.

Good luck!

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!
