seriously. My orthopod tried to talk me out of a cast and into a splint. I told him my Dr ordered the cast so I could snowboard. He looked at me like
and said "No way am I approving that!" Probably worried I sue him or something. When he put the cast on I swear I've done more advanced paper mache in school.
also, I sawed the cast off myself, as I only needed it for closing weekend at Mammoth. I bought a drug store splint which I wore for a week or two after the saw job. I went back to my orthopod for my follow up and brought the cut off cast with me! He was not amused.
