Re: 3 weeks plus one day post PTTD - splint off, stitches out!
I was a little surprised to not get a cast and go right into the boot. I didn't wear it to sleep in last night and I am taking it off here and there during the day to give my heel a break. It was a little scary without it on last night, especially when I had to use the bathroom in the night. I am used to having the big splint on to haul and to put on the floor for balance. With just my foot (wrapped in an ace bandage for a little protection) I felt nervous about losing my balance. I did OK though.
This seems to be my doc's regular protocol. I can't say I am bummed about no cast! As bulky as the boot is, being able to feel air on my foot is worth it.
