How would i know if my fracture radius and ulna are healing?

Pain and x-rays

Hand_fracture
The 2 primary indicators of fracture healing are resolution of pain and x-rays. If your pain is improving or gone then that's usually an excellent indication that the fracture is healing or healed. X-rays are used to confirm fracture healing as well.

Complete overriding fracture distal thirds of radius and ulna, bayonet apposition heals? how long?

Needs surgery

Fracture
if the pt you are describing is you (26 years old) then the answer is it would most certainly be best to have this fracture fixed surgically after which it would take about 3 months for it to heal reasonably well but 2 years for it to fully remodel also check you vit D level and try to get it up to >50 ng/ml for optimal healing

What should I do if I have a compound fracture on my radius and ulna left forearm?

Surgery

Forearm_fracture
The standard treatment for a both bone forearm fracture (radius and ulna bones) in an ADULT is surgery called an open reduction with internal fixation. Usually metal plates and screws are used to fix these broken bones. Usually this is an outpatient (same day) surgery.

Severe intrarticular comminuated fracture of radius,ulna and avulsion stylod six months ago with shifting while in cast still pain palm near thumb?

Palm and thumb pain

Forearm_fractures
can be due to many things, post fracture joint issues, things that have nothing to do with the actual fracture such as arthritis or tendonitis and some things that overlap , A careful followup exam and good follow up xrays may help sort this out

I have right arm cast complete fracture radius and ulna cast for a month will it be okay to change the cast?

Update x-ray, Yes

Arm
Changing casts monthly is typically routine. Also typical is to obtain regular x-rays to chart the healing process. When in doubt, x-ray before cast removal.

Complete overriding fracture are noted in the distal thirds of right radius and ulna possible of healing even without metal plates?

See an orthopaedist

Forearm_fractures
Adults do not usually do better with reduction of the injury you describe. It might heal, but you would probably lose function (muscle strength, mobility to position your hand). See an orthopaedic surgeon that cares for upper extremity (arm) trauma.

Dr. Gabriel Goren answered:

My fracture is in the middle of my forearm and both radius and ulna are severed. My surgeon does not want to do surgery. Is this a risky decision?

It depends

Bones
mainly how well the bones segments are aligned. If it is good, no surgery is a good option and immobilization is all what is needed.

Dr. Joseph Accurso answered:

Hx of approx 30 fractures L arm/wrist, lately a lot of pain n fluid in wrist where radius/ulna meet metacarpals. Is n ultrasound needed any radiation?

What about MRI?

Extremity-joint-wrist
Ultrasound does not use radiation, and can be used to look for fluid or evaluate soft tissues, but it is not good for looking at the bones themselves. Consider MRI to look for fluid, at the soft tissues, and inside the bones at the bone marrow.
