Well It's been about 26 hours since I got out of surgery and it has been quite the roller-coaster ride getting the pain management sorted out and figuring out how to get around with a no-weight-bearing directive and crutches. Fortunately my wife has been caring for me with yummy healthy food and running to the pharmacy for a weekend prescription.
I have an enormous top of calf cast that is so heavy it's really difficult to lift and it drags on my hip and knee if I'm not positioned just right. Fortunately a friend of ours loaned me a special foam wedge to support the leg. She says she's lent it to four other people since she used it when she broke her leg and It seems like something anyone who needed long periods of foot elevation would want to have.
Has as anyone else had this really heavy cast in the beginning? I'm kind of surprised because cast materials have really advanced in these past few decades.
