I am a FH squatter
- Jan 22, 2004
Can you sit on the end of your bath? When I broke my foot I had to sit on the end then swing my legs in. Was a right pain.
Thats good news - no surgery at least.Right, back.
Full cast, had to bend my foot back as much as I could bear the pain. Fucking kills. They will not operate as it is not a complete snap, they reckon about 6 weeks with a cast and then physio. Told me not to think about jogging for 4 months, oh how I laughed. Like I am going do that anytime soon.
They asked me to try and bring my foot back from a pointed position as much as I could bear the pain under my own strength. So my foot is not as pointed as before and next time I go back I have to do it over again. Also with the fibreglass cast I can rest a little weight on it but to be honest its still hurting from bending it back so will probably be a few days.Thats good news - no surgery at least.
Is the new cast also with you pointing your toes? That looked an awkward position to put up with?
Not too bad, in a full cast, putting pressure on the leg (Consultant is happy about that). Got stressed at work on Thursday and just wanted to be back in my own home/space. It does get me down at times having to rely on other people.
