When I was in the Cam Walker (air cast) my dr told me i could get on a stationary bike if I wanted to - you may want to try that. Also, he said I could walk in the cast to the edge of the pool and then exercise in water that was chest deep. Do you like to swim?
I am not sure about the eliptical - only because the air cast may be too cumbersome to really get a good workout.
You are lucky it will only take 2-3 weeks. Mine is taking much longer - I think because it is in my heel - they seem to take longer to heel.
Keep posting and let me know us know if you have any other questions or concerns.
Mine is either in my fourth or fifth metatarsal, so it's on the inside of my foot.
I do go to a gym that has a swimming pool, but I don't really like to swim much. Maybe that's something I'll have to start doing. A stationary bike sounds like a good idea. I'll ask about that as well.
Thank you very much! I will keep posting.
