... a small price to pay to stay in for one winter. I am getting a little sick of being inside though. My original injury was in Dec. 2009 and I was braced heavily after that but still managed to tear everything I'd previously torn except my Achilles last March. And so it's almost a year now that I've been waiting to do things. ... (14 replies)

... You're getting there! The last week in a cast was the worst for me too although honestly I was having more trouble with pain because a huge blob of 10 week old dead skin had come loose and was pushing on my incision and sticking to my heel inside the cast. I don't think I could have survived another week like that. ... (5 replies)
... The last week was hard only because my cast became very uncomfortable. ... (11 replies)
... after 10 weeks my skin had just had it and it was itchy and uncomfortable all the time. I was desperate to get it off for the last week it was on because the dead skin had built up and was causing pain where it pressed on my skin. It felt so good to soak all that off. ... (20 replies)
... how do you get dead skin off your legs after having on a cast. ... (2 replies)
... Sure, although you may have to remind me. I was in a walking cast for the last 4 weeks so I did get some weight on it during that time. ... (9 replies)
... to deal with but I think that's because I had so many cast changes before I got the boot. ... (10 replies)

... Ddill, I came out of my cast on Monday after 16 weeks. Boy my foot and calf were gross, covered in lots of dead scaly skin. I soaked my foot in a bucket of warm water to soften the dead skin and then peeled it off. ... (15 replies)

... f us. 7 weeks with no air circulating and sweat probably causes it. I too soaked my foot in a big pale of hot water for 30 mins and then had to do it again. The skin just peels off but I have to say shedding that dead skin made my foot look much better after putting cream on it. ... (15 replies)
... Had to laugh as I can relate to the sweaty feet. My cast first came off 2 weeks after surgery to remove the stitches so it wasn't bad to look at but then another cast was put on for another 8 weeks. While I couldn't feel any sweating, I was concerned about what was going on by just looking at my toes that were exposed. ... (6 replies)
Cast is off!!!!
May 15, 2012
... The shower was a bit awkward, like my first few showers with the cast on after I got clearance to WB. It was easier to move around the shower in the cast than without. It was nice to get rid of some of the dead skin and shave but last night I had shaving bumps all over my leg that were very itchy. ... (11 replies)
... I'm so glad your apt went so well! I'm getting anxious to start rehab, but I still have to wait til at least 5/8/12 when I see the doctor again! I do have range of motion as far as up and down, but that's it. Still painful to walk on, but as long as I use the one crutch I am good. I'm hoping to be off the crutches by next week. I am thrilled you had a great appointment... (124 replies)
