I went to the hospital today to get my cast removed, and they did take it off. However, the x-rays showed that the bones haven’t mended yet so I’m not allowed to walk for quite a while yet. In 5 weeks I get to go back for another x-ray. But at least the cast is off, I guess that counts for something.
I get to use the leg a little, but only 15-20 kilos of weight can be put on it for now. So I guess Bailey can’t come home yet *sigh* I have to be able to walk at least a short distance to take him out.
Below are some very nasty photos of what my leg looks like now that the cast is off. They are not nice photos.. 6 weeks with a cast on isn’t very flattering for your leg it appears! And the leg and foot are still very swollen.
