Be careful of removable cast!

Posted by Letty on 5/22/99 at 00:00 (007139)

I've been away from the board for a week because using the removable cast for 2 weeks really messed up my back. The height of the cast caused an old back problem to flare up and I've been almost in bed for a week with severe pain. I wouldn't advise anyone with any back problems to use the cast as it can really mess up your back. Be careful. I had so much pain I forgot about my foot problems for awhile but I noticed that my PF was still there. So you are dammed if you do, dammed if you don't. I get disgusted.
