Need advise before i head on holidays reg: cast


Q: Im broke my wrist a few days ago and was put into a cast yesterday 24th August...the thing is that i am away on holidays on 17th September and dont fancy being in a cast when the weather 30+ degrees. i will be having an appointment with fracture clinic in 3 weeks time (just before I go) and was wondering if I should ask them to put a splint or wrist support on instead of cast

Symptoms:  Broken wrist think closed fracture i was told...just put straight into cast
