Thanks for taking the time to write to the board to let us know the above.. Congratulations on your efforts & how far you've come. Must be a relief to finally be feeling better. How long will you keep the air cast on? What exactly is an air cast? I've sort of done all options it seems for my foot, aside from a cast of any type & at my next appt., I believe that will be pending. You must have gotten to the point of feeling better in order to walk 30 minutes a day, what a setback. Good luck to you Bill & Thanks a lot.
