Re: How do you sleep?
I have two words that will make sleep easier.... 'beanbag chair'. (let me guess... not what you were expecting)
Those huge round things filled with styrofoam dots and covered with the catroon character du-jour is an absolute God-send when it comes to getting some sleep in a bed after surgery or a bad foot injury.
Place it on the bed, give it a good punch to create a 'well' (the punching itself is therapy of sorts) and place your foot in the well... the beanbag will keep your foot from rolling as easily, will keep it elevated and best of all, because of the size of those nightmares of the design world, they support the knee as well, so no more aching knee or pressure from the edge of the cast on your leg.
They also help keep ice bags from completely slipping off the cast... (ice does help the pain and the cold can 'sink' through cast material)
I can't take any narcotic pain killers at all... and other OTC pain killers are a no-no because of other health concerns so ice is my best friend.
I hope that you soon get better nights of sleep soon.
If all that doesn't kill you makes you stronger then just call me SuperMan
