... 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)
... It's always best to call. Since it's impossible to see inside a cast and the nerves are crazy it's better to let them tell you it is ok than to assume. ... (13 replies)
... I wasn't allowed ibuproferon because my doctor wanted as much scar tissue as possible (and there is a lot). Most doctors are different than he is on that. It took me 9 weeks to get through the first bottle of pain pills and I've only taken about 2 since then. I'm now on prescription strength naproxen and that works well. But I wasn't hesitant to use the good stuff because... (13 replies)

... ack. I don't know if this is related to surgery, being in casts for 10 weeks, a couple of stage I pressure sores I had back there or even this huge ball of dead skin that was stuck to my heel and poking me for the last 2 weeks in the cast but it is very bruised and so it makes perfect sense that it doesn't like weight on it. ...

... made me aware of why I was doing this to myself, but marking the lasts I think made it so the firsts were more celebrated. I know that today, my first in a boot after 10 weeks was marked with a lot of big grins even though I was walking completely off balance and wobbling everywhere. ... (27 replies)
... If you need to wear a brace after surgery could you cover a different color brace with tan? ... (65 replies)
... tuck to my heel and i thought that was bad enough but now one is stuck to the place where the arch and the ball of the foot meet, that really ticklish place. My cast goes over my toes so I can't reach the thing with my fingers. I tried. ... (0 replies)
... Like the variation between my surgeon and most other people who have the same procedures I did different doctors will move you from a cast to a boot at different points and the like but it isn't a fast recovery. But you eventually get there. ... (27 replies)
... how do you get dead skin off your legs after having on a cast. ... (2 replies)
... to deal with but I think that's because I had so many cast changes before I got the boot. ... (10 replies)
... I had my hard cast removed yesterday and what a relief. ... (3 replies)
... bacterial soap and a washcloth to kind of "slough off" the dead skin. Eww. I didn't shave the first day because I was afraid I would irritate that skin. I covered it in lotion after the shower. ... (4 replies)
... b isn't for you, just taking a shower certainly helps too! I used regular soap to rinse off, just antibacterial, Dial. I did use a little loufah to get all the dead skin off. Felt heavenly, I might add. ... (4 replies)
... well, well, well... Congratulations!!!! yaay!!! your cast comes off!!!! whoo hoo!! ... (11 replies)
Cast off, Ugh!

... 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)
Cast off, Ugh!

... 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)
... c more dead skin came off with it! Then he started with me lying down and my legs up on a wedge with a pillow under my injured ankle. ... (124 replies)
