 New long leg cast yesterday - blue, itchy and uncomfortable.
Michael.B    11:41am Jun 1 2019

My hospital appointment yesterday went as I guessed it would: I got a new long leg/full leg cast put on.
There were a few minimal signs of my Achilles starting to knit together on the scan I had but itís still quite early days.
So I got another long leg cast - itís made of blue fibreglass which is lighter than the plaster cast I had on previously.
My foot has been set at 180 degrees again meaning my toes point to the floor and the cast ends not far from my hip. Necessary to keep my Achilles from moving and allowing gravity to let the ends of it knit together.
I had hoped this cast would be better to be in - wrong! If anything my leg is hotter and more itchy than in the plaster.
Has anyone else noticed this?

23rd April ruptured achilles left leg. Temporary plaster splint (full leg equinus)
