Recommended Posts

Like you I was denied complete freedom and been recast for another 3 weeks yesterday
My consultant actually said if he released me now , I'd only go out and abuse it- he knows what treeworkers are like for ignoring rules !!

Really did especially after nurse taking off the old cast said id be going home with an "aircast boot" and would be able to start bearing weight. To be honest I was more surprised at this than being recast. - I wouldn't trust myself not to go out trying to sawmill again !

That was exactly what happened to me , one min the consultant was saying yes have a boot then oh well actually no have a cast for another 4 bloody weeks , but better to heal properly,it’s only been 2 months and the muscle that Ihave lost is mad got all those aches to go through but I could have been paralysed so not complaining, well a bit I am , going to do the final adjustments to my iwalk and go for a walk so F###ing cool

Morning Guys, a quick update I got my iwalk and it’s so cool was so looking forward to being able to walk round my workshop so much to do , but sadly not to be today every time I have my leg anywhere but up on pillows it’s swelling up so it’s back to the hospital, if I’m lucky they might just give me an air soft boot , will let you know how I get on 

Cheers Mark

Hi you know what they say about the grass being greener now that I have an air soft boot it’s hot big and would make mad max proud up to my knee so f###ing big I need 70,s flares to go over it , but at least it’s a step in the right direction well not literally I can take it off so I am off to have a long soak of both my legs in the bath no more hanging one over the side 3 months of not washing my leg it’s going to be ace especially if I can get my girlfriend to do my back yes get your minds out of the gutter I did say back , It felt so strange to have no pins or plaster and trying to move it was even stranger normally you just sort of subconsciously just move but thinking ankle move and it don’t hardly move F ###ing odd  so there,s my up date 

Thanks Guys Mark

Hi Guys, just a quick update , I have been managing to do some bits and bobs at my workshop but I am surprised at how unfit I have got 2 short days and I ached all over, but can’t wait to be able to walk , the iwalk I have has been ace but a bit unstable when chainsaw carving , I am back to fracture clinic tomorrow afternoon and I am hoping they will say I can start to pu weight on my leg , it’s going to be weird to start with but got to start getting back to work, it’s a proper struggle at the mo I do have some things for sale I will post a few pics a bit later got wheelchair hoovering and dishes to do 

Cheers Mark
