  1. My life kinda sucks right now.
    So, last Saturday I hurt my foot, and I thought it was just a sprained ankle walked on it for a week.
    Finally went to the doctor today, she told me to go to the hospital to get some x-rays. I did so, and they sent them to my normal doctor.
    About 3 hours later I get a call from my doctor telling me to come back in. So I go back and she explains to me whats going on and writes me a referral to go back to the hospital.
    I go back to the hospital and im talking to the nurse, shes giving me more details and whatnot, and long story short it turns out that I fractured my Calcaneus (heel bone). So she talked to me and I had a choice of either going into surgery and they would cut open my foot and put a metal plate in it and screw it to the bone, or getting a cast and having crutches for four weeks, then getting a boot cast with more crutches for another 4 weeks. I didnt want the surgery because the rehabilitation for that is even longer+ more painful.
    But I dont mind the cast to much its the big boot im dreading.
    I guess things could be worse but it hurts like hell.
  2. You don't need the boot cast so they probably won't force you to get one. Just tell them you don't want it.
  3. Don't even wear the boot cast, you don't need it. My grandma broke her ankle like 5 years ago and they tried to make her wear one after the cast, but she told them to go fuck themselves, lol.
