removing the plaster before time is taking chance with our health. the plaster must be for to allow healing to muscle and joint if there is any injury. x rays dont show muscle hence to avoid any chance your doctor must have placed plaster to give you full recovery. if i were your doctor i would suggest please keep it for week then its all yours...
