 Re: Cast Anxiety
Annette T    2:29pm Dec 12 2019

Hi Bob,
I've never had a full leg cast, but for 2 weeks after my operation I had to wear a knee immobilizer which was the size of a full leg cast and it was pure torture. So I understand but luckily I got rid of it after two weeks. I honestly don't think I could have handled it much longer... So I really feel for you and what you are going through.
I am is a short cast now - but it's my 3rd cast since I broke my leg in JUNE. And even though I can sort of bend my knee and leg (rod through knee and staples are still in) I've had enough of this short cast. It doesn't allow for any swelling and the minute my leg isn't elevated it's swelling. I just feel like my leg needs AIR.

How long do you have to stay in the long cast?

My follow up appointment is Monday and I can't wait for them to cut this thing off. And I pray that I don't have to get another cast on.
I am so over this injury and just want my life back...I feel like I've really been given a raw deal in the grand scheme of things.
Good luck to you Bob.
