Physician discussed my condition, how operation went/procedure/next steps. Then left for associates to put on cast. I politely explained my circumstances as to slight discomforts with the cast that was removed and, just maybe they would take that into consideration. I had to call that night because the cast put on was so tight my leg was swelling inside and my little toes were numb. The people I called were very nice and were able to get me in the next morning and the lady who put on my cast must be commended for such a good job she did...1000% better.
