Waterproof, my a**e!
on 15 August 2012
Last week I had my Achilles Tendon sliced & stretched. My leg was put in an Aircast from toe to knee. I bought this waterproof 'protector' so that I could still shower & bathe. It worked fine for a shower but today I decided to have a bath - the weight of the cast is pulling at my foot (even when lying flat) and a warm bath seemed like the perfect cure to a sore back.
After half an hour my back felt great and I eased myself out of the bath - and saw that the bottom of the 'protector' contained about 4 inches of water. The foam padding in the cast & the surgical sock underneath are now soaked through. Result: a trip to the hospital, a long queue and a new cast
Even though its clearly marked that you can use this to shower AND bath, I'd strongly advise just using it for quick showers
