we went to see the ortho Dr, and he said a hard cast it is. So sad for the summer, we have already ordered a waterproof bag for getting wet. But he is kinda bummed about the outlook on his summer. We go back for new e-rays in 2 weeks and the hard cast is to stay on for 5 weeks then back to the velcro cast ugh! The Dr. said that the worst breaks he sees come in his office are from skate boards and encouraged me to remove the wheels from it and use them for another purpose "like your tv cart"
