Hi again! Had an ankle fusion on the 23rd-had a new cast put on on the 29th-now it seems AT TIMES the cast is too tight across the bridge of my foot & kind of freaks me out..How do I know if its something that should be checked out? I live an hour and a half away from my surgeon so I don't want to go there if I dont have to. Thanks,once again Dr.Gross!
Thanks for your reply. Now, I have had a fibreglass cast for what will be 6 wks. when I go to see my surgeon next week.Is it reasonable to think that my Dr. will put me in an aircast for the rest of my recovery from ankle fusion? This fibreglass cast is getting the better of me! ;-) Thanks again Dr.Gross!
