The one challenging thing has been putting on my right shoe and changing my clothes. I feel a little helpless because I cannot bend my right leg to put my shoe on nor can I reach down to change my shorts. Its kind of a drag and cannot wait to get this cast off on Friday. It has also left me to take sponge baths because I cannot get this cast and bandage wet. All I need is some dread locks, a few hemp necklaces and a pause at 4:20 and I would fit in with the cool crowd.
I have been able to get around my house without crutches and I try to walk with all my weight on my left foot. I can put weight on my right foot without pain but I am trying to avoid any extra stress on that leg until I see the surgeon.
This evening I will sleep in the bed since I have been feeling pretty good. I have not really needed the pain medication at the moment because most of my uncomfortable feeling is not pain but rather stiffness and itchiness.
So far I am happy where I am with my recovery and things are going well.
