Forum Name: Bone trauma and fractures
Question: Cast off
|nemesest - Sun Aug 26, 2007 9:50 am||
HI, i had my cast for 3 weeks after i had my wrist frature and the doctor said I'll have it off in 2 more weeks. But, I took it off since I felt confident that I wont have any more accidents since I'll be staying home for those 2 weeks. Will I need to see the doctor again and get the cast on again? As long as I don't hurt my wrist, I will be fine right?

If your cast is now off I would recommend you contact your doctor about this. There may still be a significant chance that an injury could reoccur.
Your doctor may or may not recommend the cast be replaced.
