Travelling in an Aircast. Help make this easy!
December 6, 2013 9:58 AM Subscribe
Official diagnoses is Peroneal Tendinitis and I was given The Boot to wear for two weeks (only off in the shower and while driving). I am full weight bearing. I have a special family trip to NYC planned for next week. I'm concerned I'm going to slow my family down or be a burden. Please give me tips to get around easy and also (MOST IMPORTANT) to keep my little foot warm and toasty!

is the boot I was given. I only have to wear it for two weeks at this point (from yesterday) and will go back to the Ortho on the 19th to evaluate.
My family is hesitant and nervous in regards to the boot affecting what we are able to do. Our hotel is in midtown and the only thing for sure planned is a trip to see the Christmas Spectacular. I'm certain that there will be other touristy type christmas activities. One particular member of my family is pushing for me to just not bring the boot with me and to wear sturdy tennis shoes. I don't really want to do this because I want to make sure I heal completely the way the doctor has ordered. Any tips or anecdotal support about how this will not be an issue at all are appreciated.
Beyond that, this thing has an open toe. How do I keep my little toes toasty while wearing it! I don't anticipate it being a disaster unless it snows. If it does snow, then what?!
TIA for indulging me!
