Broke my ankle in 3 places, 4 weeks ago, after postponing surgery 4 times then postponing a cast twice, I spent almost 2 weeks in hospital. I have 2 plates and numerous screws. After 2 weeks in a cast, it was removed and replaced a week ago. Over the last few days, I suffered siatic pain and awful pain in my thigh (same leg) suddenly my knee and toes swelled and it was recommended by a health professional to go to A&E to have my cast removed. They told me to go home and come back the following day for an appointment at 12 for an ultrasound, but to be there at 9 to have the cast removed. I had the cast removed and went to an appointment on another ward at 12 to be told to come back at half 3 for my scan. The scan showed I have a blood clot in my thigh. So they didn't re cast and have replaced with a boot, which is much easier but can I sleep in the boot? I wondered because I should've spent another 3 weeks in a cast. I'm very impatient and desperate to get better soon so don't want to put myself at any risk. Also (nothing to do with it but) just for good measure, my boyfriend left me a little over a week ago. So I now have limited freedom and am left with my thoughts. Feeling rather sorry for myself. Sorry for the rather long winded post. Any advice is much appreciated! Thanks in advance!
