I have had my stitches (staples) out and am now sporting a new plaster cast. This one is, actually, plaster-free, and a lot more comfortable than the original one.

When they cut me out of the old one, my fat toes were testament to just how restrictive it was – my foot and ankle was positively tiny in comparison. I have a ‘bone bruise’ at the base of my two smallest toes where the cast has been crushing my foot for 17 days, and as a result they’re quite sore. But the new cast is more comfortable and has now set my foot at 90 degrees from my leg. My toes are a much better size and colour!

I’m going to remain like this for about 2 more weeks – and I still can’t put my foot down!


I hope everyone had a good Christmas. xx

    You’re not ready for a game of footie in the park yet then?

    What colour is the new non plaster plaster cast? Did they let you choose?

    Froggy – No choice. They’re all white. No football. No walking even!

    Flighty – same to you too.

    That’s a bit unfair. My son got to choose betweeen pink, white and blue when he broke his arm. At least a coloured cast would give you something to look at.

    Can you reach well enough to scribble on the white one?
