You should've asked the doctor that. I've known skateboarders who go at it with plates in their shins, but it doesn't seem like a great idea to me. What's 2 years of doing something else in contrast with messing up your arm for the rest of your life?

They'll have you doing exercises after the cast comes off to help your atrophied muscles get back into shape. Ask your physical therapist or whoever oversees your treatment if you can toprope some easy stuff after a few weeks. Only they can give you an answer since only they know your full diagnosis.
