Re: First cast experience - what is normal?
I had my surgical splint on for 10 days, but the time I got the cast on, it felt so light! The splint was SOOO heavy!! Yes it itches and sometimes feels like the stitches are pulling, all very normal. There were days where I felt like I was going to go crazy in the cast. I had a cast change every 2 weeks, so by day 10 I was ready for my 5 minutes of freedom between casts. I thought the boot was heavier! Good luck!
