I'm 6 weeks post-ORIF for a trimalleolar ankle fracture. Been in a cast the whole time. My doctor wanted me to stay in a cast for an additional 2 weeks but after begging and pleading with him (it's very hot and dry here and the cast is uncomfortable), he's allowing me to get the boot at the end of this week (but still non weight bearing). He's only allowing me to remove it to shower but otherwise I have to wear the boot 24/7, even while sleeping.
Out of curiosity, is the boot lighter than the cast? Heavier? Bulkier? Easier or harder to sleep in than the cast?
