This cast!!!!!! I don’t know how people can stand it. Every day I ask my wife to cut it off and let me put the old brace on. She always says no. I stare at it at night wondering if I can do it but I can’t really reach the end of it and my wife would be angry.If not for the cast it wouldn’t be so bad. If I need something my wife or children are super helpful. I get to watch movies/tv and play video games. If it hurts I just pop a few pills. It’s almost like a Holliday.(if not for the stupid cast). I have an appointment on aug 11 for MRI and if ok, cast off on aug 13. I have a calendar next to couch that I cross off the days. Makes me feel a bit better.
