 Re: Help me! I'm getting a bent knee cast on Monday and I've never had a cast before

Howís it going? I imagine you are glad for not bending the knee. Bending the knee hurts pretty dang bad after a break like that! I was blessed to only have a boot, so I could scratch if it itched and take it off momentarily for showers. Then when I got my screws taken out, I had bandages, and had to put a trash bag over my leg, taped at the top in order to shower. Thankfully my mom helped me. I became a professional sink bather lol. Hope you have a good update for us. Word of advice though, donít worry about tomorrow will bring. This kind of break takes a LONG TIME to heal! It could be a couple of years before you feel completely normal, or you may recover more quickly since youíre so young. Iím 28. But I also have metal in my leg. Best wishes!
