For those who have had casts in the past, understand my pain. I recently had ankle reconstructive surgery on my right ankle, and for 30 days I've had a cast on. This morning it was removed, and I was put into a removable AirCast. For the last few weeks I've been inconvenienced with carpooling and getting rides places (sometimes involving letting others drive the Escape) and I was happy to be able to finally drive myself around again (The motorcycle was a viable option when the weather was good)... Now that I'm mostly good and able to itch when I want, please just take a minute to be grateful for good health and such. I basically grabbed the same style brush you would scrub down your deck prior to sealing it and scrubbed my foot in the shower for 10 minutes. The Endorphins that I felt throughout my body can only rival that of every drug in the world mixed together!!!!
Be thankful you can scratch the itch if you need to, even after the doctor says "no itching, and that means using coat-hangers, screwdrivers, etc".
