HI GIRLS... After 7weeks and 4 days I'm no longer in a cast and it's heaven!! Had my clinic appointment this morning and consultant happy with everything. Now in a boot with LWB. All my fears are normal, and just to get the cast off so I could see how it was healing was great. No the plates have not pierced skin or moved as this is what's been going around in my head!! Thought I had a blister on my heel as it's been painful, but nothing. Was surprised to see that it's still bruised quite bad and still swallan, but all normal. Boot is very big and bulky, but good thing is..... I can take it off at night, but must put it on every time I need to get up. My skin is very very dry so lots of tender love and care with oil and creams. So far today I've been in ? wheelchair for first time in 4weeks, doing a little shopping. But still glad to get home to elevate and get some shut eye as it's shattered me out. Still a lot of aching and burning in my ankle and toes, but day one of the road to recovery. Nxt appt in 4 weeks. Consultant told me that the break was really bad and to prepare myself for hard work once physio starts!! So today girls.... I feel like there's a light at the end of the tunnel.... Let's hope it continues. Sx
