I went to the dr today with high hopes of getting rid of this cast.
I was given the opportunity to put on a removable leg brace to give me a little more freedom... like taking a shower or a bath unrestrained.
Well, I called the orthopedic supply place to find out about the brace and my insurance would not pay for it. They expected me to fork over 125-600 dollars out of my own pocket for it.
I was devastated because that meant I had to go back into a cast again.
Then the dr also requested me back in 2-3 weeks to relook at it and finalize my care.
Well, come to find out the dr will not be back in the office for 4 weeks.
So I am stuck in this cast that is more uncomfortable then the last one for another month.
Which means, that the day my 4 kids go back to school and that is supposed to be my first day back at the elementary school (should I go back) is the very day I get my cast off.
So my entire summer break will in this dumb cast....... WAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!
