This past Wednesday the Dr. put a splint cast on my ankle/leg. I fell down the stairs in my house on Tuesday night and I was just hoping it was a sprain. Not so lucky....This Thursday I see the Dr. again and am hoping I will get a walking boot instead of a cast. The cast will drive me crazy with my restless leg syndrome. Anyway.....what does one do to not totally deteriorate when you have to be on the couch for 8 days with your leg up? I can't put any weight on my left foot at all. Leg lifts and arm weights are the only thing I can think of. Any suggestions? Also, how do you not gain weight just sitting here. Of course, I am eating less but this is sure putting a dent in to what I have been trying to accomplish living a healthy life style.
