 Day 2 post-surgery: leg feels like itís on fire.
David A Evans    5:47am Mar 21 2018

Iím two days post-surgery and my leg feels like itís on fire underneath the Plaster of Paris splint itís set in: the pain and inflammation is bad at both my Achilles site and the tendon feels red raw, and also my femur with the plate and screws in situ.
I would really really like to rip this Plaster splint off and ice my leg: I iced my achillles routinely when it was sore pre operation days. Obviously I canít remove the plaster so can anyone suggest anything I can do?

Iím having a really really bad day today, pain wise and emotions all over the place.

Surgery 19.3.18 to repair Achillesí tendon and reattach gastrocnemius muscle to femur, then 3 months in plaster
