The cast came off this morning. Yay! for unencumberedness. It feels a little weird to be walking, and of course I'm still favouring my left leg a bit, but over the next few days things should improve dramatically. I have been warned to take it easy, and to be very careful with steps and stairs and kerbs and the like.

The skin on my foot and leg looks a fright, though -- but nothing, I believe, a long soak, a pumice stone and a dollop of cream can't sort out. Let the pampering commence!

BTW, over the last few weeks I've become seriously addicted to Heroes, and yesterday, I've watched my very first episode of Ugly Betty, which I know is going to be a favourite, too. So stand by for seeing me exchange my present Doctor Who(by which I mean, Ten)-icons for icons of my new fandoms soon.

Yay for being free of the cast!

Isn't the dead skin coming off seriously icky though? I had a skinny calf for a few weeks too, but luckily it didn't last long.

Like, SRSLY! I just took a basin of tepid water and a towelly rag to it, and I took so much dead skin off I was half expecting to see bone appear! There's still a scab over the incision which I've been careful not to touch, the flesh still sort of pulls a bit there, but already I'm getting better control back over my foot, and I'm happy with how things seem to be progressing.

Yay for freedom!

And yes the soak, cream and pumice thing should do the trick

there's nothing more disgusting than the way skin looks after a few weeks in a cast!

Take it steady and do your physio !

I've already made an appointment to see Rutger, the physiotherapist I saw earlier in the year, tomorrow. He'll make me work, don't worry! ;-)

::squee:: That's great news!
Aug. 21st, 2007 05:22 pm (UTC)
I never knew 6 weeks could stretch out so long! ;-)

Not that you weren't doing everything with it on anyway.
Aug. 21st, 2007 05:16 pm (UTC)
Oh yes; but not having to lug a ton of plaster around makes it so much easier! ;-)

Hurrah! Being free deserves a Snoopy Dance!

The blog thing won't work for me....it keeps saying there is too little information!
Aug. 21st, 2007 07:35 pm (UTC)
What? That can't be right! Forget it - it's a crap analysis anyway.

Thanks for the Snoopy dance!

Woot! Glad to hear the cast is off and you're doing well!
Aug. 22nd, 2007 02:59 pm (UTC)
I seem to be doind a little too well, if my physiotherapist is to believed -- he thinks I'm overdoing things, and need to rest it more...although he also says he knows me well enough to know that's not going to happen ;-)

My thought exactly.

Yay for freedom!

Oh, I have to buy that DVD of Heroes Season 1, I hear it's being shipped now!
Aug. 22nd, 2007 03:00 pm (UTC)
Well then, best put your order in!

Isn't it wonderful? Although it also means I'm running out of excuses for not returning to work soon.
Aug. 22nd, 2007 09:36 am (UTC)
Yay for your cast coming off I kind of know how you feel I've been on IV's and my needle comes out tomorrow woohoo proper showers!!!

Heroes and Ugly Betty are amoung my favourites too!!!
Aug. 22nd, 2007 02:56 pm (UTC)
woohoo proper showers!!!

Sheer bliss, I do so agree! And in my case, it's helped set my skin to rights, too.

Don't forget, Heroes is on tonight -- do you get BBC3, or do you, like me, have to wait a week to see the next episode?
Aug. 22nd, 2007 04:20 pm (UTC)
I have Sky now so I get BBC3 and hopefully the new series when this one finishes :)
Aug. 22nd, 2007 05:03 pm (UTC)
Excellent! Then I can come to you for spoilers. ;-)
