    Hi Osef, I hope your day is going well!

    I am glad you are making progress with healing and that your pain is diminishing.

    I broke my foot in 2 places three months ago. I am starting to feel better although sometimes the physiotherapist gives me exercises I am not ready for. I am scheduled for an X-ray on Tuesday, so am hoping for some good news!

    As for your broken cast, I would check with your doctor whether or not it needs to be replaced. Also, it may be a good idea to ease off of the weight bearing until your doctor's appointment.

    If the cast is still on, If at all possible; it might be a good idea to leave it on until you do see your doctor.

    Keep on getting better Osef!
