I wouldn't be digusted, rather be very fascinated if these buggers were underneath my cast, healing my wound...

AFAIK, they are not placed under your cast.

They only eat dead flesh and they aren't maggots from house flies, they come from a type of fruit fly if I'm not mistaken. They can actually keep wounds very clean. Think of it as a nurse cleaning your wound every few minutes without any of the pain of being scrubbed.
