So while trying to go down the stairs to get something to eat. I got to the last 2 and fell! My cast hit flat I'm so afraid I can't start this process over! I can still wiggle my toes and move my foot up and down in the cast I'm just hoping I didn't hurt myself. I need this cast to come off on the 30th I'm 4 weeks post op today!! Uggggghhh!!! 😩😩😩

    Are you having any pain? If thete isnt any you are mist likely ok. I accidentally put my foot diwn a couple of times but it's been fine. If there is a lot of pain go to emerge but chances are you are ok! 😀

      I've done it a few times. As long as you aren't in pain you are probably ok. Your cast would protect. It is super scary rhough-i cried for hours after I stepped on my foot thinking that I screwed it all up and was going to have to start again. I called my surgeons office and they said if I'm not feeling pain I'm probably ok. I understand the being scared. Sounds like you're ok though!!!

      I cried like a baby called my husband crying! It feels a little funny I'm going to go check in with the doctor tomorrow just to be on the safe side!

    I fell in my splint while using my scooter getting off the CTA and I was ok. I had some throbbing but I'm fairly certain my splint protected me. Hope all is well.

    OHHH GL Danette, I hope everything goes OK for you. LOL you cannot be as daft as to have 2 breaks in a month. It is a good sign you can wiggle those toes. GL again cheesygrin

    Dear Danette

    Reminds me of when in my cast I tripped over one of my dogs at the bottom of my bedroom stairs.....I got an appointment with my surgeon and was found to be OK.

    I'm sure you will be fine.

    Good luck. Richard

    The cast is a good protector, the thing we come to hate, is the thing that protects the best.

    Even though I am walking without crutches around house (hobbling I should say) I still wear my

    boot when I go out to be safe.if theres no pain you should be fine.

    Don't be afraid, fear leaves you without clarity of mind.

    saying a prayer for you.....
