So here's what I have learned about having two broken arms...it is very inconvenient and it could have been worse. With two broken arms you cannot scratch your ear or neck. It is difficult to eat because you can't get food to your mouth easily. You can't pick things up if they are the slightest bit heavy. You can't open packages or containers or doors. Having a cast makes you very hot too. On the plus side, I can walk. I like the casted arm better than the braced arm because the cast stops me from doing most things that might hurt while the brace lets me do it and regret it.
