Patients in hospital in full body casts - where are they now?

One leg raised on a sort of pulley gubbins. Two eyeholes.

I don't know but in Rear Window James Stewart's leg cast is all the way up to his navel. How did he toilet?

Binocular case.

With grace.

In order to post an amusing pic, I naively googled images of "full body cast", and some of you are perv enough actually to expect what comes up if the safe search is "off".

Taking the patient for a stroll in the grounds:

Swapping the urine bottle and the drip.

That's Catch 22.

It serpently is.

pulley gubbins

Is that the same as traction?

Angry but inarticulate noises "#*@##!!" as the unuspected villain responsible for his injury walks past, wearing a doctor's white coat

Mad World.

"Ah, Mr Perkins, and how are we feeling today?"

"Not great actually doctor. How soon before I get out of this blasted cast?"

"Well, that depends Mr Perkins. Do you promise not to sleep with my wife again?"

When I broke my leg, I had to have it elevated. But they did it by bending the bed in the middle, rather than an elaborate Heath Robinson pulley system. To my great disappointment. After I had exclaimed: "it will be like in a Carry On film!"

T'other day talking pictures tv was showing a Laurel and Hardy film. Olly was in hospital with a raised broken leg in plaster. Stan (accidentally) dropped the weight attached to the pulley out of the window. All sorts of chaos ensued and somehow a doctor and stan were both hanging out of the high-floor window.

Anyway, to cut a long story short, that is where patients with suspended broken legs are. I am not sure about the location of the patients in full body casts nowadays.

Billy Gilbert was the doctor, who you may remember from such dwarves as Sneezy.

Full body casts were usually for TB weren’t they?

They’ll be back after Brexit.
