Do I Wear A Cast If I Break A Rib
7yo in cast for buckle fx wrist (ulna) 2 day ago. Holds wrist against chest, afraid to move. Ok for her to do 2 lb weight rom elbow and mainta bicep?
Why worry : The common buckle fracture is not displaced, does not reduce the integrity of the bone and all heal well.They can still hurt like crazy. Leave the kid alone and let him/her resume activity when the hurt subsides. Pain tends to subside after the first week & soon after you may have trouble keeping the kid from battering the cast off. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
2 weeks: I'm guessing this is an elbow dislocation, since the shoulder really can't be casted.

I had my cast off after having a clean break on my 2nd metatarsal, I know it will be painful and swollen after, but do u know how long for??
Fractured Metatarsal: First of all, I assume that you have had the cast for at least 4-6 weeks. Usually it takes this long for a bone fracture to heal. It will continue to be slightly sore and swollen for up to another 2-4 weeks. If the X-rays show that the fracture has healed, you can attempt weight bearing on your foot gradually as tolerated. You should also take anti-inflammatory medications (ibuprofen, naproxen).. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
