Ok I cant be the only one who's got some broken bone and is now casted... anyone want to join and talk joys and tears of casts!

I am glad that you can get colored casts nowadays.

I have a broken arm! Woohoo for casts ... does yours extend over your elbow or stop just before it?

I swear, when this thing comes off, I'm going to take an hour long shower, WITHOUT the use of a garbage bag! I miss my showers ...

I broke my wrist about a year ago and was in a cast almost up to my armpit. 10 weeks of torture. I let my kids pick the color for me (bad idea) they chose dayglo orange, lol! I found that purchasing the $20 shower protector thing was worth it, it was easy to use and I never got my cast wet.

I was a naughty girl though with my cast, I would stick chopsticks down there to scratch That was one of the worst parts for me, the itchiness.

I hope y'all heal real fast!

Orange, wow! I went with basic black but was really amazed at the colors they've got out now. Also, nobody can write on this one.

My BF keeps telling me to get a flyswatter or something with a long handle to scratch the itchies, but so far it's been bearable. I'm afraid of infection so I've kept stuff out of there.

How are you holding up? I havent had the itch yet, but the sticking sking is driving me buggy! Ugh and I cant seem to get comfy while sleeping. I've got 3 more weeks. 3. How 'bout you?
