Re: Talus fracture - walking cast?

Without seeing the specific injury I can only make a general comment.

Generally, Talar neck fractures (of which there are several different types) are usually non weight bearing. Some are worse than others. A cast boot vs a hard cast in a compliant patient is not m uch different. In a kid who might take off the boot a cast is preferable. The benfits of the cast boot are obvious- bathing, physical therapy, less itching. Personally I am thrilled not to have to put casts on nowadays.

My recommendation is to see your doctor sooner and speak about your concerns. If then you are not comfortable, get another opinion.
