Patient :Fractured my ankle last month while hiking and was put in a fiberglass cast three weeks later. I have been good not getting wet until today. The tip of my cast where my toes are is wet but the rest of my cast is dry. I only have two more days until it comes off. Should I get a new cast or just wait the two days?
Thank you for your question. Since it is only two days until the removal of your case, your fracture has likely healed. There should be no need to have a new cast placed for two more days. Simply await its removal, and you should be fine.
