I had surgery on my foot and was able to visit with a brace and cast on.

It should be fine. You'll likely need a letter from your surgeon or other attending physician that states the date you had your surgery, the location (right arm, for example) and that you'll need to be in the sling for a period of time. Any other cast/splint/brace should be listed there, too. They may ask to pat down the sling or wand it, but otherwise you should be fine.

Best of luck and thoughts for fast healing!
