i haven't but i just wanted to say that i hope he gets well soon!
how long does he have to wear the cats?
My son had 6 weeks of full leg casts, then the surgery for the tight heel cords. Now he wears special shoes and a bar that connects them. It's for clubbed feet.
The casts were a breeze for him after the 2nd day. My only issue was he'd get poop on them the 2nd day we had them on so I was stuck with nasty casts. But he cared less.
The shoe/bar were a little harder to get used to, for me and him. But now we're in week two and he's doing much much better.
