Our doctors recommend returning to the clinic every 2 weeks when you have a below knee fiberglass cast on. This is the longest time recommended between visits; in fact, if we are worried about swelling, it may be even sooner. The reason we say 2 weeks is because as your fracture heals, it is important to have X-ray evidence of healing (or lack of healing, if that may be the case.) In addition, we examine your muscle strength, the appearance of the skin if it has changed, and to check if there are any areas of irritation that need to be addressed. Also, it gives you a chance to "air out" your lower leg a bit! If you feel that you may have an injury that may need attention or any other questions regarding your cast, call Prairie Path Foot and Ankle Clinic and someone will be able to help answer any questions you may have.
