So I have a largely swollen right leg and my left up to the knee in plaster.What my three year old grandson calls an OUCHY FOOT God bless him.So I am just getting now after a few weeks into an acceptable pain threshold were I can actually now hobble around. have nfun without me for the last few weeks I have it on for a further month I believe.

I’m sorry to hear about this, Alistair. I’m glad you are on the mend, though. I hope you are making sawdust again soon.

Hope you feel better soon! I broke my leg two years ago, and it kept me out of my shop for about 6 weeks. Hope you heal faster than that!

Really SORRY you’re going through all that PAIN… just from a welder being dropped on your foot!

It could have been worse... it could have been a Circular Saw with the blade still spinning! LOL

Get WELL SOON!

Alistair, So sorry to hear this. Us old guys are more fragile and take longer to heal up. Keep your chin up and your feet out from under heavy objects.

Hi Alistair, As old china man say, “to drop heavy thing on hanzees and footzees not very good idea>” I did it to my hand a few years ago. Nothing broke, but just the same it hurt like heck.

GET WELL SOON ! ! !
