I don't have med insurance for my son, and he needs to have his full cast shorter so can I do it with a file?

In brief: Go back

To where the cast was originally placed and have it adjusted.
Or go to your local health center or university and inquire there. Have you thought about trying to get your son insurance via medicaid or chip? It does not hurt to see if you qualify. Talk to your docs and explain your situation, more often than not you will find people willing to help you and your family.
