what if there is no callus formation on the complete fractured radius ulna? overlapping fractured seen in xray

Hard to say: May be too early to see callus, nonunion, etc. X-ray findings need to be correlated with history and physical exam, preferably by an orthopedic surgeon. There is no shortcut to this.

A 33-year-old member asked:

Is it ok to get a chest X-ray in the first trimester?

If necessary: Any type of test that exposes you to radiation (x-ray, cat scan) should generally be avoided in pregnancy. If such a test is medically necessary, the abdomen should be shielded with a lead apron to prevent exposure to the baby.
Dr. Christopher Powers
Obstetrics and Gynecology 23 years experience
In the first trimester, the uterus is still a pelvic organ, i.e., it still hasn't risen much above the pubic bone. Agree with adequate shielding, a chest xray will be no problem.

How is the cause of abdominal pain determined without xray?

Dr. Barry Rosen

Many tools: Identifying the cause of abdominal pain is like solving a mystery, compiling clues based on a medical history, physical examination, lab results, x-rays, endoscopy, and response to rx. In cases where we cannot use x-rays, ultrasound can be helpful but will not replace a ct scan, when necessary.

Depends: Most ankle twists (sprains) do not involve a fracture but occasionally a more severe twist will cause something called an avulsion fracture where the twisted ligament pulls a small piece of bone away and this is called an avulsion fracture.

Dr. Ronald Galyon
Orthopedic Surgery 35 years experience
Varies: It varies with age, health, surrounding, and other factors. Very young children may heal a fracture in this little and 3- 4 weeks, while adults, average six weeks, with geriatrics eight weeks and longer.Healing is quicker with proper alignment and immobilization. Surrounding soft tissue damage and preexisting health issues often retard the healing process.
