I broke my arm. How long will I have to wear this cast?

depends on the severity of the break. if it isn't too bad probably u will have to wear it for 6 weeks if it's worse u may end up wearing it longer

Your doc should have told you didnt he??

ask your doctor

when i broke my arm (radius and ulna) i had a full arm plaster cast for 2 months

Depends how serious it is. Someone I know just injured their arm and have a cast for 6 weeks. On average I'd say its about 4 or 5, longer or shorter depending on the damage.

When you go back in on your next appointment, they will do another X-ray to see how you are healing. Then they will either set another appointment or tell you, "Well, you have healed fine, let's get this cast off." When you hear those words, that will be the end of wearing the cast.

Probably 8 to 12 weeks. I broke my arm when I was a child. Depends on how bad the break is.

it's usually 4 - 6 weeks depending on where the break is.

6-12 weeks depending on the severity of the break.

It depends.... if your bones are totally or partially broken... I'd say about a month


Ask your doctor. It depends on many things - how old you are and how bad the fracture is.

Depends how bad at what type of break, fracture, greenstick, open fracture. If not bad then around a month

Depending on the break, 4 to 6 weeks. It's going to start itching and the best way to stop it without digging a coat hanger down between your arm and the cast (not a good idea), is to shake baby powder into the cast and use a hair dryer on cool to blow the powder down into the cast. It will help soak up the sweat and stop itching.
