Ankle Update (again)

IMG_2307

Thank you to those who asked about my ankle. Sorry, this is the same image as last time, as there is not much change to it visually. However, I have some good news today :D.

My visit to the hospital confirmed that I will not be requiring the operation which the doctor told me about. Phew, that was my main concern! And what's more, I've got a new and improved cast! It's fiberglass - not only does it look better (an important aspect in this day and age), it's lighter! It's still got a hole where the toes stick out so I still have to wear my half-sock, but hey, can't complain - it sure beats the old plaster cast.

There were 2 previous post on my ankle and here they are:

A broken leg - that's what happened last weekend - posted June 11

Ankle update - posted June 17

P/s the visit to the hospital for a check-up took 5 hours. I had 3 main things that got done in that time - got an x-ray, saw a doctor and got my cast redone. There were so many people, but I'm glad my tax has been put to good use :). I must commend the hospital staff for their patience and dedication to help people.

Hi there how are you feeling?I recently came across your blog and had to say hello. I recently fractured my foot in 2 places and got myself a fancy fiberglass cast as well but I need to know how do you get a sock to fit over your toes,none of mine stretch enough,lol. Oh and what color did you get? Hows the swelling? Feel free to email me if you like,feel better,Dave.
