Patient :I had a ucl repair on my thumb on Saturday and woke from the general anesthetic with half a pot cast on, held in place with a bandage.
If I removed this cast and replaced it with a removable cast with velcro straps (in order to remove for short periods in order to wash ect) would I cause any problems?
