    I've done this before when I had to have a partial cast when I sprained my ulnar tendon (the one that goes to your thumb) and it works good, i'm only in the shower a 10 minuets a day, but with a broken arm it might be 20 minuets lol.

    I'm sorry but this don't work very good...
    I break three times my left hand, one my right one and one more the right leg and ever when I try something like this my own sweat, aimed by the plastic bags, wet the orthopaedic plaster.
    The thing I do to take a shower is like this, but on first step, wrap around the broken arm/leg a big piece of cotton or wool fabric which absorb my own sweat, and after, layer with plastic bags like you.
