Hey guys, I managed to hurt both of my legs on a labor day weekend trip with my cousins and older brother. We were doing our annual labor day trip to the lake house upstate and I came up short while jumping off of a cliff (think 10-15 feet above the water) into the lake below. Both of my legs are currently in above the knee soft cast/braces as I injured the ligaments in one knee and broke my tibia and fibula in the other leg.
What should I do about my outfit below my waist until I recover. All of my dress pants are a relatively slim fit and won't fit over my braces. Should I wear shorts? If so should I avoid cargos and try and wear a nicer short or a finer material? I can also try and find some older dress pants that I can cut off in order to fit over my soft casts. But really they would come half way down my thighs and I would end up wearing the dress pant equivalent of daisy dukes so that idea is out the door.
I also don't want to bring attention to my injured legs. I'm embarrassed enough about the incident. Should I try and find huge, baggy dress pants to fit over my casts? I tried this with a pair of my dad's pants (he weighs about 150 pounds more than me) and it worked OKAY. But I would have to reach down my pants to itch under my braces and I don't want it to look like I'm jerking off under my pants at the office when I go for an itch.
I mean, it's a worst case scenario, but I could always drape a blanket across my lap FDR style. I spend most of my day at a desk anyway. That seems like a dumb idea but my girlfriend thought it was pretty clever. I feel like I'll look like an old woman about to go to knitting club.
Anybody have any creative solutions. Despite my two fucked up legs, I still want to show my company that I'm a professional.
