 Re: Less than 12 hours in the new cast - get it off me!!

Hi Stephen,
Myself and a lot of others on this forum I'm sure understand exactly how your feeling right now. I also had cast placed with how your young lady is describing..'old fashioned plaster Paris bandages first'
I couldn't believe how the words they used 'snug' it would feel.
We are in early Spring here in Oz and the weather is heating up, thankfully I had my cast removed on Wednesday. I've got to be honest with you I could have cried with relief when it was removed.
The leg use to swell up pretty bad at night and that was with me elevating it most of the day!
At one stage I almost felt 'castrophobic'.
I'm now in a Moonboot for 4 weeks not great but better then the cast that's for sure.
It'll be a long journey for you Stephen, we are here if you need support or just to rant to others that understand your predicament.
Take care.
