I'm 4 and a half weeks post-op. After week 1 they changed my cast to a fibreglass one and took out my stitches. Had them in 5 places, my leg looked like a map of the train network
. Week after, saw the consultant who decided not to change the cast again but let me weightbear on the bad leg with crutches. Am hobbling about the house without them but using the crutches whenever I'm out and about. Could possibly drive with my left foot (in my automatic) but not going to risk it.
Am naturally sick of having the cast on (showering is a pain in particular) but am also really nervous of what will happen when it comes off. Am mentally preparing myself for the worst case scenario but even still......
