The doctor first put a half plaster cast on her to ensure the swelling had run its course and which came off after 3 days. She is now in a knee to toe plaster cast supposedly for the next 3 weeks. The cast has become quite loose and she is complaining of abrasion now on the back of the ankle.
-Should the cast be taken off because it should not be plastered?
-If the cast comes off, how long should her foot be strapped for?
-If the cast stays on should her foot be strapped when it comes off in 3 weeks and if so, for how long?
-If the cast stays on should it be redone because it is so loose now?
-I also read that any bandage should not be worn at night. Is this valid?
Any advice would be much appreciated.
