Now That's Better

So I went back to the doctor's yesterday to demand a new cast thing.

My regular doctor wasn't in so I saw one of his associates, I told them what happened, they took one look at the cast verses my surgery and said they couldn't figure out why the intern dude put such a high cast on for one. They said if the ankle isn't involved they always use a short cast.

They also said the only time I need to wear it is when I am up and about, no need to sleep with it on at all.

They said if they didn't have the correct size they should have sent me to a medical supplies store instead, which is what this doctor did because they didn't have any that would fit me.

So off to the medical supply store, and he said that if they don't fit you with the cast correctly they can actually cause injury.

So I got fitted properly, got a shorter cast, didn't have to sleep with it on and I am one happy camper today.

Holy Crap!!! Keep the name of that doctor! If you have any questions about something your doctor tells you or something they do - call that guy instead for a second opinion. Good for him!

It's about time you got a break. Oh, wait. I probably should have phrased that better. Well, you know what I mean.

Take care of yourself darlin'!!!

Well, there went the weight-training regimen. ;)

Glad to hear it's slowly getting better.

I'm late to the party, but I'm glad you were able to someone who knew what they were doing. Is the best part being able to sleep without it?
