I broke every bone in my mid to hind right foot 12 weeks ago after falling backwards down an emergency exit on a moving coach.
The consultant i saw last week was very vague, he didn't know where the physio (which takes 5-6 weeks to be arranged) is held, didn't want to change the paperwork which is wrong about my fall and has told me i can wear a fibreglass removable cast to weightbear in.
I have tried this and it is holding my foot in the wrong position at 90 degrees and is curved at the bottom. It is certanly not supporting my instep which needs to be supported due to the peroneus longus muscle and tear in the plantar ligament.
He also said there was still a break on the surface of the calceneous.
I have not yet met the consultant i am under and see a different person every time i go who often contradict themselves.
I have attempted to contact - and have left messages - with the consultant's secretary who said she would call me back (first time she has contacted me in 3 months) but hasn't.
I am still in a lot of pain and my foot is very swollen
What would you suggest would be the best way forward with this please?
