Comment : Re: Broken fibula - day 5
Posted by Andy on Sun 4:57pm 3 March 2002
Lets get one thing clear, there's nothing wrong with the A-Team, in fact it's one of the high points of my day!!
Yes it gets that bad.
I've done both my tibia & fibula and been in a full length cast for 5 and a bit weeks. I'm not due back to the hospital 'till the 26th I'm hoping to get a half length cast then.
The OS originally said 12 weeks, but I think it's going to be nearer 16 and then I suppose it's physio time.
My cast felt really tight at first, but after the swelling starts to go down it means it won't be too loose.
It does get better after a couple of weeks & by then you'll have memorised the day time tv schedule.
Hope all goes well, keep in touch.
