You were implying I have some kind of choice in the situation BP. I had no choice but to remove the plaster. With a calf twice the size as normal I'm not exactly going to rush back to have another put on. Though I'm sure the incompetent 16 year old nurse who put the last one on without asking any medical history questions & without giving any advice on what to do if I developed a blood clot, would only be too happy to put another one on. Remember one hospital told me there was absolutely nothing wrong with it, & to walk on it as much as possible to keep it mobile.
Where did you do your tandem jump Bellaboo? At least with a tandem you don't have to land by yourself.
BP, My bed isn't that comfy, but it's better than death from a dvt blood clot, which was forming in my leg. Had I not cut cast off I could be dead now. NSH is a total disgrace & I don't trust them. Maybe they should try putting doctors in hospitals. On visits to two hospitals I was told there wasn't one doctor in the building.
BP...I was given no advice what to do if cast caused problems. Calf still massively swollen. Very glad I cut it off. Didn't keep appointment at fracture clinic. Those prats aren't coming near my leg again.
Woody, don't have a ski boot, but sounds like a good idea.
SM, hope it hurt. A lot. What a waste of good bacon dropping it on your horrible scabby toes.
It's the frustration of all I have lost too, MT. Have had to cancel my holiday & can't do loads of races I've entered, including a marathon. No holiday no running no parachuting. But at least I got the bloody cast off. Oh the relief. Thought my leg was going to drop off. I'm in no rush to get another plaster on it. Stuff that.
At least you have come back from yours & can run ok.
