Comment : It does get better..................eventually

Annette: I fell while trimming hedge bushes in my yard and broke my tib/fib, hospital 10 days, and got put out 3 times. Twice to get the bones straight and once to place the plate, screw, and morescrews on both sides. I agree the most painful part was the swelling in the cast. Like tight rubber bands and my toes would turn purple. WHen I was in the cast room for a re-check there was a patient who was having their cast re-done because it was too tight! So CHECK INTO IT!!!
Having this boot on with velcro is much better. Things progress slowly, especially if you are used to being active. It drove me crazy so I took my dog for rides in the car. We didn't get out of the car but had an ice cream cone and got some fresh air! Be sure to get out a bit too! Take care, Mary
