Angie_C : It's OFF!!
Diary entry posted Fri 9:23am 16 December 2005

Well... I finally got my cast off! My what a great feeling that was! I was so worried that when they took xrays it was going to show that it was still broken and they'd have to put another cast on, but it wasn't! i'm all healed up! thank GOD! I don't even have to have a walking cast. The OS told me to use my air brace and wear a shoe when i walk on it for 2 weeks with crutches. but i'm at 100% weight bearing.
When they took the cast off i was like... omg i look like a hairy snake! i definitely didn't like all the dark long HAIR on my leg, and the worst part was all the dead skin! it's horrible, i don't know what to do about the dry skin, because it's really bad. i keep lotioning, but it doesn't even come close to making it better. it's disgusting and messy! i wake up in the morning and i have all this dead skin all over my sheets! any advice on this issue is much appreciated!!
I have to have PT 2x's a week for 4 weeks which is good. i know i need it. just a pain in the butt going. oh well... i'm just glad to be healed, and i know i have a long way to go and i'm gonna be limping around awhile, but it feels like such an accomplishment to have survived 7 weeks of brokenness!! I am so grateful for this site... everyone has been so wonderful in answering questions and being supportive. I hope i can help everyone else as much as i have been helped!
