you dont need any new parts do you? just switch the nut around, flip pups around too, and then the strings, i dont know how long you wont be able to play guitar but i dont know if this is worth, it, it will be extremely hard to switch now and probably not worth it

You might want to strap your guitar up acoustic-style so that your wrist isn't actually taking the weight... But other than that... where there's a will, there's a way.

Try playing it upside down before switching anything around, and see if you feel like learning to play all over again.

thats a moronic idea, first of all, you wont be able to play anything with ur right hand very well, and second of all, how will you strum with ur left hand

I would say this would be a good time to learn some slide guitar, in an open tuning, that way its not hard on your wrist, you just gotta be able to hold a slide. Assuming your cast isnt super big or something.

Learn to play lap slide. Just get a new nut, jack up the strings, the pickups, and use heavier strings, and throw the guitar on ur lap.

whats the dick dale way??

forgive my ignorance

The dick dale way is basically stringing the 6th string where the first string should be the 5th string where the 2nd string is etc.
