Leeís-busted-leg 2:38pm Dec 2 2018
Hi all - itís been a tough week. I had to go back to the fracture clinic on Wednesday as the cast they put me in was too tight and my leg was still quite swollen from the breaks and so I got discoloured toes whenever I tried to get up and use my crutches. It hurt.
I had the cast removed and they put me back in a back slab cast.
The swelling has subsided a lot and my leg feels a lot more comfortable now. I go back to clinic on Thursday and hopefully Iíll get a permanent cast as this one now feels not very supportive of my breaks. Itís difficult- too tight and the cast feels painful and too slack and not supportive enough. I may call fracture clinic tomorrow and ask them for some advice.
Iím frustrated as I feel like Iíve spent the last week not healing.
