Re: Cast Claustrophobia
I spent 15 weeks in casts and I understand the sense of urgency and claustrophobia. I did not feel near as badly as you, I did have moments when I just was panicky about my foot and ankle in a cast. I was given breathing exercises and my family tried really hard to engage me in activities when they could see an episode coming on.
When I got in the boot (for another 10 weeks), there was enormous relief because I knew I could take it off if needed and that assurance was all I needed to keep the panic at bay. Just be sure to keep the boot on as much as you can so the bone can heal properly!!!
Good luck!! I hope the boot makes a difference for you.
