Hi my DS fell of the trampoline last week it turns out he's a greenstick fracture to his wrist they put on a temporary cast in A&E i was just wondering how long i can expect him to be in plaster !!! (i know each case is different but was just wondering what to expect when i go back to hospital next week )

They heal very quickly at that age. DS1 has had a broken leg and a broken wrist (and he is only 5, bless him) and they both healed very quickly. Can't remember how long exactly but no more than 6 weeks.

DS1 had a broken arm (the upper arm bone - humerus?) at 20 months sad - he healed in just over 2 weeks, was amazing!
