    My daughter whilst on holiday in Kenya had a fall and had to have her leg pinned , she is finally coming home this weekend ( thank god for travel insurance)

    She doesn’t have a cast on is this normal ? Her surgery was keyhole so only small wounds .

    My dad's leg only had plasters put on when he had his leg pinned. I expected him to have a cast but apparently it's not needed. I hope your daughter recovers quickly.

    Ouch, your poor daughter. My partner had his leg pinned after a car accident, he also didn't have a cast put on.

    Thanks for the replies , she got back by ambulance Sunday morning . Had her to the fracture clinic today and the repair is perfect although he did say shins could take up to 6 months to heal .

    Thank god i declared all her medical conditions because the £40 policy has covered around £15k in expenses including a medical repatriation .
