Patient :My 12 yr old son broke his elbow Wed night and the Orthopedic Dr that his Dr. referred us to cannot see him until Monday to cast it. Will he be ok to wait or should I see if I can get him in with a different Dr earlier ? I'm concerned with how quickly children heal and don't want it to heal incorrectly.
