Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries
The main reason why a caste is put in place is the immobilize the fractured bone.
One week is too little a time for the caste.
So I would not recommend taking off the cast now.
correction cast not caste**
The reason why I would not take off the cast so early is because it is your hand which is all the more likely to be used during work so if proper immobilization does not happen healing may not be perfect..
Ok thank you, ***** ***** just gets in the way thanks for your help
