A 30-year-old member asked:
Could someone have a problem later if too many fractures and wrist or hand xrays as a child?

Maybe: It depends on how the fractures healed and how well your body remodeled the bones as you grew. As long as there is not much residual deformity, it is unlikely to cause a problem.
