no, most likely you will need your above the knee longer than 6 weeks.
when do you go back to your orthopedic doctor for xrays?
27th April which is pretty much the date of the flight. Concerns around DVT. I understand that they need to split the cast or have something called an adjustable cast.
an adjustable cast should be softer for you
The current stance is that flying with such an injury cannot be done.
and easier on your knee
at your age of 33 blood clot is less risky than if you were older.
it sounds like your doctors are not advising you to fly.
So an adjustable cast, I don't know what they look like or made from, what the primary purpose is.
anyway you can postpone or reschedule the trip?
it should be more flexible in the knee for you.
Do you know anything more about an adjustable cast? What material is it made out of? My understanding is that it has air inside it?
more like that
