my cast was driving me crazy...it felt like my skin was rubbed off in lots of places. i wanted them to just take it off but i settled for a new cast instead.
while the cast was off, it was nice to see my arm, touch my arm, wash my arm. some skin is rubbed off but not as bad as it felt. that was reassuring.
the new cast is much more comfortable for several reasons. it fits closer to my arm. my thumb has more room my fingers can move better because this cast is not as low on the back of my hand. all that makes a big difference. this one feels like a cocoon. the old one felt like the iron maiden.
