Symptoms?: You do not mention why you would return before your scheduled visit. If you are having pain or new symptoms, call your Ortho doc to,discuss ASAP. If you are just in a rush to remove the cast/boot, it may be too soon. Generally your doc would have the return visit timed when healing had occurred, and changes can be made.
