Hi my name is John I’m 69 years young and was diagnosed with Parkinson’s about 7 years ago. So far my condition has not interfered with my life too much. However, just over a year ago I ruptured a tendon in my left ankle which means I need an operation. This will entail having it in plaster for 6weeks and then lots of physiotherapy. My concern is that because my left leg/foot muscles are often tensing the cast will cause cramps and discomfort. I know this will be the case as after the accident I was issued with a surgical boot to stabilise my ankle but could only keep it on for a short time for the reasons mentioned above.
I wondered if anyone out there has had a similar experience and how they coped with it. Because of covid 19 the operation has been postponed and is now unlikely to take place before next Spring. So plenty of time to worry!! But hopefully find a solution.
Any information will be gratefully received.
