Hello Farahhana, thank you for asking.
The cast is installed to protect the part of the broken bone and limit the motion of the broken bones and joints. Movement of bones and joints must be limited so that the process of fusion between bone fractures is more perfect and more effective. There are casts made of plaster or fiberglass. Patients are not advised to open the cast themselves, or change the position of the cast. This can cause injury.
During the use of the cast, the patient must treat the cast, including by:
keep dirt away from the cast Keep the plaster from getting wet. Lift the cast or cover with plastic. If the cast is wet, there is a possibility that the skin will become irritated, itchy, and infected. If there is swelling, compress the swollen part with ice. Swelling may occur for several days or weeks. Swelling due to fractures will occur an inflammatory response by the body. Do not put anything, especially sharp objects into the cast if the skin inside the cast feels itchy. Lift or prop up your arms with a pillow while sleeping so that they don't get too swollen. Move fingers regularly so they don't stiffen. Do not lift heavy objects. If your sister feels pain that is getting more and more intense, accompanied by increasingly significant swelling, then you should contact the treating doctor. Routine control to the doctor so that the doctor can assess the progress of healing. Thus our answer, hopefully helped. Regards.
