I've had wrist arthroscopic surgery done, and now it looks like my bones seperated and they pop all the time and its very painful..Is this normal?

Wrist arthroscopy: If you are early in the postop period, you may simply be experiencing pain and popping due to postop inflammation, which should resolve with time. If you are well beyond the postop period, then you should see your surgeon for follow-up to include x-rays for re-evaluation.
