broken screws in my tib fib/ wet cast

i broke my tib fib in december of 09, i had 3 plates and 13 screws put in my leg. I was doing great up until about 5 weeks ago I had a lot of pain in my leg, i went to the Dr. and they told me i have two broken screws, they put me in a cast for 3 weeks then changed out to a new cast last week, I got water in my cast from showering and I want to know if i can take my cast off myself? will this effect my insurance? I will go back to the Dr. to get a new cast but i just need this oone off!! Its Memorial day and i have to wait till tomorrow to make an appt to come in and replace the cast... i dont think i can. The cast got wet yesterday at 5 pm
