Hi everyone! I'm hoping everybody is doing fine, and progressing well in their recovery. Things have been going ok with my leg, and each day is another day closer to getting better...or at least that's how I'd prefer to look at it. Lol. I'm kind of excited because with any luck, this will be my last week in a full leg cast! Fingers crossed:):)
I have another appointment with my ortho doctor this Saturday which will mark 6 weeks that I've been in a full leg cast, and about 7 1/2 weeks since my injury occurred. When I first went in to get my initial cast applied, after a week and a half in the splint, the doctor told me I should expect to spend at least the next 6 weeks or so in a full leg cast and then probably a short cast after that. Well, it's been 6 weeks and I'm REALLY hoping that my leg has healed enough to allow them to put me into a regular short leg cast, or dare I even say it....A Boot!! :):) That would be great!! I would do just about anything to be able to bend and move my knee again!
