 Question -- Can I sleep without the Removable Air Cast?
Greenferry (---.ne.client2.attbi.com)   5:53pm Dec 13 2004

I have a question for those of you who have experienced a removable air cast. I am at Day 53 of the broken fibula. It's been out of a fiberglass cast since Dec. 2 (11 days ago). When I got the removable cast, all my doctor said was not to put any weight on it, just use it to "balance." He didn't offer anything else. I remembered reading on here that some people slept with the removable cast on, and so I asked my doctor if I have to sleep with it. He said yes, so you "won't do something to your leg." Well, I have been really uncomfortable sleeping with this clunker, and I am wondering just what it is that I could possibly "do" to my leg while sleeping alone in bed. I'm just trying to figure it out. Is the weight of the blankets the problem? Would turning over in my sleep "do" something to the leg? Since my doctor didn't offer the advice, and it was just an offhand response to my question, I am thinking maybe it's not that serious if I sleep without the air cast.

What have your experiences been?

Thanks,

Arlen.
