Break a leg

broken bone

Here is an x-ray of my dad's leg. He insisted on leaving the wheelchair issued by General Hospital for the drive over to his own doctor. It takes him thirty minutes from the point of exiting the car to reaching the administration clerk on the second floor. The doctor placed a removable cast on his leg, as opposed to a plaster cast. I wonder, if he had kept the follow-up appointment at Gen. Hosp., whether he would've gotten a plaster cast there. Everyone who's ever broken a bone seems to complain about the itching.
