Hi Hannah, I know when my son broke his wrist it was very flaky and not a good colour when the cast was removed. I believe this was to do with the fact that skin cells have a pretty rapid turnover and with a cast on they can't flake off normally as they do in the bath etc normally. Lack of air would also affect this. If you have thin skin at all which some with hms do - perhaps it would be good to talk to the surgeon about this as it should be taken into consideration when he operates.
I understand about the social aspect and that must be hard - could you have a girly night in at all. So the fun
could come to you. It must be difficult thinking of ways to maintain contact with your friends.
Will be thinking of you on the 8th
