 Changes to my body since my injuries
Michael.B (62.60.60.---)   5:45am Aug 11 2019

Iíve noticed some changes to my body since my injuries happened a few months ago:
While I was waiting to have my latest plaster cast fitted the other day, there was a couple of minutes when i had nothing covering my injured leg and I noticed a lot of differences compared to my good leg.
Itís lost so much muscle tone due to being fixed in plaster for 12 odd weeks. Itís skinny compared to my good leg and I wonder if itíll ever be the same again as it was pre injuries?
Also the skin is really dry and beginning to flake in places having not had any light or air inside the plasters Iíve had on.
Has anyone else noticed similar things?
Iíve also put weight on - not sure how much as I canít exactly hop onto the scales - but itís probably 3/4 stone or so judging by my belly.
My shoulders and arms are more toned due to being completely non-weight bearing in my casts and having to use crutches since my injuries. Itís like a workout every time I use them.
Psychology- I wonít go into that just now, suffice to say these injuries and the news I need an operation have had an impact on this side of me too.

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