I broke my wrist two weeks ago, after an operation including 3 pins protruding through the skin i had a cast that was only plaster on one side to allow the side with the pins to swell, i had pain and swelling at the start but all was normal. Yesterday I got my permenant cast on it feels tight and sore around the pins with little electrical(if you know what i mean) sort of pains as the cast is around my whole arm now. Is this normal? Im trying to decide wether to accept it and hope its just cause I only yesterday got the cast on or wether to go back in and get it changed.
