... Glad to hear your surgery is done and it sounds like it went well!! Yes - is the short answer to your question. :D The first cast/splint I had was made from POP (plaster of paris) - the heavy stuff!! Sure gives your leg a workout carrying it around! Was very glad when I got my fibreglass cast on the 10th day - much, much lighter - almost felt like I didn't have a cast on... (6 replies)
... Surgery is done! The doctor has planned a Brostrom repair, but on seeing how stretched out my ligament was, he did the tendon reconstruction instead. He used the tendon from hamstring. ... (6 replies)
... and Im now on week 6 of the recovery process. Im finally out of the hard cast as of Tuesday and in an air cast walking boot. What are folks experiences with this air cast when they've had this kind of procedure? ... (25 replies)

... I then went into a cast for 2 weeks. ... (6 replies)
... I feel like a veteran of the Brostroms. I had my first modified Brostrom 10 years ago. They tightened the ATFL and I had wonderful success with that. Then 10 months ago I badly sprained my ankle again. ... (6 replies)
... at the 6 week mark. This seems completely unrealistic to me...this is my second brostrom procedure on the same ankle and I remember being in a cast for 6 weeks.... ... (2 replies)
... What about doing it on your lunch break or getting to work at 6, but maybe going to PT at 8 or 9? Or 4 and be done for the day? I know it will NOT be easy because the first time I ever did PT (between my 2 ankle surgeries and for my back, not ankle), I worked similar hours. 7:30a-6p but only 4 days a week; however, I lived so far from work that I didn't drive in on my off day...

... The problem is that I work from 6am-5pm 4 days a week (kinda crazy and painful on this ankle), and I never know what day I have off ahead of time, so scheduling PT would be difficult. But I will definitely get off early a few nights so that I can go. I definitely don't want recovery to take any longer. As for the surgery on my other ankle, I was expecting to maybe have it...

... for that reason. Yes, you should go into a boot after you get your cast off. I did both times as you aren't able to walk the day your cast comes off and you're told you can bear wait. It takes a while to transition. ... (7 replies)
... My doctor put my latest cast on himself too!! But there is more on that in the other thread. ... (31 replies)
... But the other guy put on my other cast. I saw my doctor every visit though. He would come in and cut each cast off himself and look at my incision and my ankle and examine it. ... (31 replies)
... wow, your doctor put the cast on himself? ... (31 replies)
... who put my cast on himself! ... (31 replies)
... So glad you got the cast! Just take it slow..... it took me some time to figure out how to walk again :) (31 replies)
... I got my cast today! the PA that put the cast on gave me a cast shoe and told me that it is a walking cast, but that doesn't mean I'm going to be walking on it right away. ... (31 replies)
... I feel for ya!! I just had a modified brostrom repair for my ATFL and CFL with debreedment and peroneal tendon shortening. I am just went from my surgical cast yesterday to a new hard cast. I am NWB for 5 more weeks then I get to move to a boot with partial WB. ... (31 replies)
... Hi! Yes I was told weight bearing after two weeks - but didn't actually accomplish that until week 6 or so. It was a very slow and painful recovery for me...so don't push it too quickly too soon. I was on crutches for about 7 or 8 weeks. After going through the surgery - I must confess I agree with Hollywood - 2 weeks is way too soon to be weight bearing - but that was my... (31 replies)
... Yeah the PA sounds like she knows what it's like either because she's gone through something like this or because she is the one doing all the cast changes and suture removals and sees more of what it's like for the patient. ... (31 replies)
... o problems but the cast was uncomfortable to walk on for long distances. ... (31 replies)
