 Re: Aircast woes

Thank you Bethany, I would much rather be in a proper cast. The boot is heavy and doesn't properly immobilise my foot and ankle so it just increases the pain, I really can't move about much in it. It's ok all the while its propped up on pillows and still but otherwise it doesn't immobilise it. I have told the hospital but they said I have to keep it. I am going to try and pad the sore areas tomorrow to see if it helps.
I can't believe you having both legs cast, you poor thing! It must be awful. Bethany Pharr wrote:
