Yes, I know that sounds bad, but it seriously sucks. I don't shower every day for a few reasons. First, I do nothing during the day, so don't really NEED a shower everyday. Second, it takes the energy out of me to shower. And thirdly, because I can get my cast wet, it actually takes a while to dry, and therefore I freeze.
The shower here where I am staying is very small, and I have a small chair that I put in so I can sit, which makes my showering space extremely small. Its difficult to get everything done, and I have to slid the chair around while I'm in the shower to do it all. Then getting out is always tricky, as well as hoping over to the other stool so I can sit and get ready. By the time I'm done drying, moisturizing, doing my hair, getting dressed, ect, it's close to 25 minutes. I am truly exhausted by the time I get out of the bathroom!
Now the one thing that really annoys me, is that my cast takes forever to dry. I am able to strain most of the water out by lifting my leg up and letting the water drip out the end of my cast, but the mesh still stays damp. Its not to bad if the weather is warm and I can get the sun to dry the cast. But it is Autumn here in Melton, and not overly warm. PLUS, when my feet get cold, they take FOREVER to warm up, therefore leaving the mesh still damp, and me very cold- its a never ending circle!
I have used a hot water bottle to try and warm up my foot, and that sort of works, but it takes time for the heat to get through the cast to my skin. Today we turned the heater on in the house as it is quite cool out, so I put my leg in front of the heater. It worked while my foot was there, but as soon as I left, it seemed like my foot got colder.
Oh well, I just keep thinking I only have 2 weeks left and then I should have this darn thing off, and one that I can take off and shower. I'll still have to sit down when I shower as I don't think I'll be able to fully weight bear, but I can handle that :)
