Waterproof cast is a lot more expansive than a regular one. You may have a hard time convincing your doc to purchase supplies (unless you're willing to pay extra - that is above and beyond what your insurance will pay)

did not know there was a water proof cast..explain that to me. I am in my 2nd week wearing a cast. 2nd. cast was recently put on. I have 11 more weeks. They told me not to get it wet but they never mentioned a water proof one.
I do know however the doctor has to order it for the insurance to pay their portion.
