Boot Rant

Well it is 12:30am and as usual I cannot sleep and I am mostly mad at the dang boot!

I am 6 weeks post op today and I have had it with this heavy, bulky, pain in the bleep thing. Has anyone ever weighed their boot? It is getting heavier each day it seems. I cannot get comfortable in any of my sleeping positions lately and it is driving me crazy!

For my last surgery I had an aircast and I thought that was heavy.....and I also had it 2 less weeks than this one so this is getting old. I have the black to the knee one with a million or so velcro straps this time.

I know it is better than a plaster cast but I just had to rant to those who understand. I am going through a little bit of crazy depression at this point. I am off the heavy meds but still have pain and soreness. I have 2 weeks to go until that hopeful word from the doc..."walk". Then I will have a whole new set of complaints I guess!
