Plaster Cast Advice
If you experience any of the following, call 911 immediately or go to the nearest emergency room:
- Blue or swollen toes or fingers, or an inability to move a limb.
- Your arms, legs, or other limb becomes more painful, or you experience tingling or a pins and needles sensation.
- You experience blister-like pain or excess rubbing under the cast.
- You notice a smell, wetness, or discharge coming from under the cast.
- You accidentally drop an item inside the cast.
Some advice for care while recovering includes:
- As much as possible, exercise your other joints that aren’t in a cast.
- Elevate the affected limb, and don’t let it hang unless you’re using it.
- After initial application of a plaster cast, let it dry uncovered for at least two days (48 hours).
- Stay a reasonable distance away from fire, as the cast can get very hot and burn you.
- Don’t get your cast wet, as this can cause it to disintegrate and result in skin issues.
- Don’t heat, cut, or damage your cast. If it becomes loose, cracked, or otherwise damaged, go back to your doctor.
These are just a few pieces of advice for caring for your cast during recovery. Your doctor should also be able to provide some pointers so you can make your healing period as trouble-free as possible.
