Comment : Uncaring Docs = Pain
Posted by Scott_F on Wed 8:35am 20 October 2004
The worst is when youre in terrible pain and you get an ortho who could care less. These people need to be retrained to understand how bad it is for us.
The booty is a good thing. You'll be able to take it off and rotate your ankle and stretch it out so when its time to put weight on it life will that much easier. I acually never had a cast I went from surgery right to the boot.
I still have to wait for my wounds from surgery to heal a bit more before I can take a bath, and man I need it. Just a sign of how some docs have no clue. My doc said, well you can take a shower. Shower? He must want more business, showering with one leg is asking for a hip replacement or cracked skull.
Good luck and thanks much for your post.
