I saw the orthopedic specialist yesterday and after running several more x-rays this is what he had to say --
Me: So, can you throw a removable splint on it?
Doc: No, due to the nature if the spiral fracture and the fact that it is extremely unstable, you will need a cast.
Me: So, how quickly can you throw a removable splint on it?
Doc: Ummm, no. You need a cast.
Me: So, you're saying the removable splint is on its way?
Doc: You're very lucky you aren't getting surgery. Choose a color because you are getting a cast.
Me: Oh, I understand, the lady next door will get me that removable splint.
Doc: See you in a week for a follow-up and again in 3 more weeks for another follow-up.
