Got my hard cast off today!

    My broken leg seems to be on its way to healing. I got my hard cast off today and am now sporting a removable Air Cast (meaning I can take it off when I shower, yay!). I'm then starting PT next week.

    The only bad thing is that my bone isn't fully healed, so I can't walk today as I'd hoped I'd be doing; I have to wait another three weeks before I can put weight on my leg. But in a way, I'm glad I'm starting PT before I begin walking so that my leg will get some of its strength back.

      Well thats good news. The worst bit is done and you'll be dashing around before you know it.

    Congrats!

    However, still- whatever you do? Do not push yourself too hard. Just because the cast is off now, the muscles and tendons still need therapy to strengthen.

    Take it slow. wink smile
