I don't think there's any right or wrong there Tomsk. Both are acceptable, although "throughout" probably emphasises the fact that someone's doing something all night long, but both mean the same thing.

It HAS done, actually. Being right-handed, it's been really awkward. Still can't straighten the arm, so hope it doesn't stay like it is! : (

I would've looked pretty stupid in hiking boots against what else I was wearing, and I was off out somewhere when I came out of the doctor's. As it happened, I ended up at the fracture clinic for hours. : (
