DryPro Blog Difficulty Sleeping with a Cast

Nights are often complicated when wearing a cast. It disturbs us, the quilt is heavy on the injured limb, and sometimes pain appears during the night. In order to spend a relaxing night, try to wedge the casted member with cushions to make it more comfortable. Likewise, if your leg is in a cast, don’t hesitate to raise your foot with cushions. It will enable better blood circulation. Finally, if the weight of the quilt is too heavy, there is a trick to stay warm without being bothered. You can make a cardboard structure that will relieve you of the weight of the quilt, and allow you to sleep more pleasantly.
