Cast Free!!!!

I went to the podiatrist today…
Cast free!!!

The cast was removed!

Hallelujah!

He said:
– the bone callous has gone down in size, meaning it is flattening out into normal bone again.
– however, it is not totally healed yet.
– I should wear shoes around inside the house
– if I feel ANY pain in the foot, I should put the boot back on for the rest of the day and start fresh the next day
– each day build up wearing shoes a little more
– if I’m going to wander around a shopping center for a while, I should wear the boot. At least for the first week.

It sucks that I may still have to wear my boot at times, but I’m so glad to not have that cast on anymore.

Although, my skin started tingling within 15 minutes of the cast being off and it hasn’t really stopped yet. (2.5 hours later)  The skin is really sensitive too.  I was eager to get in the shower and wash cast residue off, shave and just feel like my foot and leg were clean.  But shaving my leg actually kind of hurt because the skin is so sensitive.  I also still have lines all over in my leg from the materials used in the cast.  Kind of like when you sleep funny and end up with a crease in your face, except they are tiny thin lines all over.

  1. Awesome news on the cast removal! YAY!!

    Hannah’s skin is still sensitive and she is going on 3 weeks since her cast was removed.

    I remember having to wean out of my boot, too. It was so weird walking around without it!

    • 3 weeks in and still sensitive, huh? Yowza! Poor girl, I hope she’s doing alright though. I can’t imagine how incapacitated she must have felt, it was bad enough with the leg!

  2. […] It used to seem like I got a little bit of catchup time at various points in the year for my job, but it hasn’t felt that way at all this year.  And the past few weeks have been ramping up a lot, in addition to the copious amount of work that I have been acquiring.  For every item I check off my list, 3 or 4 more have come in.  Combine this with Team Challenge recruiting meetings for the fall season and “life” in general, I’ve been running at full speed.  (Well, except for doing any ACTUAL running… that isn’t happening yet!)
