Got a question for the boot guys:
I broke my right leg at the beginning of last season, a spiral fracture. The leg has pretty much healed, but the two places on my shin where there was bone displacement (about 5 inches up from the ankle and 6 inches below the knee) have some bone edges that protrude. It used to be much more jagged but as new bone has built up they've rounded off somewhat.
As I said, the leg has pretty much healed and my orthopedic surgeon has given me the green light to do whatever physical activity I feel I can handle. So, I tried my boots on. I have Full Tilt Konflicts, love them. They fit like a glove. Well, the left boot still does, the right boot hurts where the break zone were.
Any experience with this? I figure I've got a few choices:
- Do nothing, let the Intuition liners eventually mold to the new shape of my leg as I use them a few time.
- Heat them up again and remold them, to minimize the pain of waiting for the first suggestion to work.
- Have some custom work done on the tongue to allow for a little more room at those zones.
Feedback? Suggestions? I'm going to ski this year no matter what, I'd prefer that it not hurt like hell.
