here is my update..

They had to reschedule my surgery until next Monday ( the 22nd) . I fell two weeks ago Wednesday and have been in an air cast since then. They are sure it is broken but the xrays won't show shows a "possible" fracture. So they are sending me tomorrow for a cat scan. The doctor said they will go ahead and do the surgery if I am in a walking cast but it hurts so much to walk on it at the moment that he wants to wait and see what is going to happen with it. I go on Wednesday to sign the papers, do labs, and ask any questions. I just want to get this over with. I am scared on how it will effect my life and I tried to talk to my DH last night about it and he told me to " get over it". Is anyone else's dh not overly supportive? Maybe I caught him at a bad time? ARGH...anyway hugs to everyone!

So sorry you are going through this

Robin what a mess to be in. But I have to agree you want to make sure your mobile as walking is important for your recovery. I hope they can get you casted soon. God Bless you!!

An air cast doesn't have the same support as a regular cast. If the scan shows a break, maybe they'll put one on.

Too bad dh isn't more sympathetic. Next time he gets knocked in the gaboochkees, tell him to 'get over it'.

So Sorry

I am so sorry to hear about your injury. Ouch- I broke my foot a few years ago and was fortunate to be put into a walking cast. The walking cast is amazing, as you will be pretty much pain free. You may want to talk to your orthopedist and explain the situation about your upcoming surgery. Even if it is not fratured, maybe they could give you a walking cast while it heals.
I wish you all the best. We now have the same surgery date!
