 Less than 12 hours in the new cast - get it off me!!
Stephen T    3:20pm Oct 24 2019

The cast Iíve had put on today - less than 12 hours in it and all I can say is can someone please take it off?
I thought it was made of the light fibreglass stuff they use but thatís just the outer layer which is orange.
My partner tell me they used old fashioned plaster of Paris bandages for the layers of cast below this orange layer of fibreglass - does this seem odd or normal? I saw a girl in the plaster room getting a cast cut off like mine and the last few layers of hers wailing fibreglass that almost lifted off like a shell when they cut it and beneath it was what looked like plaster, maybe itís usual practice?
Its not great - main thing is the weight. So hheavy that lifting it up onto and off things is a real effort.
It grips like a vice around my leg - not too tight but just vice like.
6 weeks in it - going to be very very tough.
