How long will a cast last before it falls apart?

I broke my leg again last week.  I have a cast thats supposed to come off in 4-6 weeks.  I got lots of signatures and drawings on it and would like to keep it.  How long will it last before it falls apart?

    If it's a fiberglass cast, like most are nowadays, it should last a really long time, potentially years. Just make sure they are careful how they remove it so they don't damage the important artwork any more than necessary. They also make products to clear coat and seal fiberglass so the signatures and graffiti on your cast don't fade, but they aren't particularly cheap. Old fashioned plaster casts are less durable, and tend to break apart when bumped or dropped, so you might double check with your doctor to confirm which kind you have.
