: Broken ankle--I need your help!

I broke my ankle last week in Gaspe. The cast comes off in four weeks, to be replaced by a splint one week before my week on the Dean.

It is my understanding a splint is much like a ski boot. Can one be fitted over a neoprene stocking foot wader? Can it be built with a felt sole? Studs? Names of manufacturers or suppliers?

Advice and alternate solutions are desperately needed.

Many thanks,

Bob, contact a 'sports medic' specialest (sp??); you're not the first.
