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.

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.

Healing period for compound fracture of radius and ulna right arm cast one week ago?

Depends but

Arm
Typically most fracture heal in about 3 months but may continue remodelling for up to a year. After three months most fractures are healed to the point where there are no restrictions. That is also true for compound fractures but it depends on their severity

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

Dr. Peter M. Ihle answered:

What should I do to speed up the recovery for a compound fracture to radius and ulna left forearm?

Cmpound? or open?

Forearm_fracture
compound is no longer in use in orthopedics. in the past it could mean many peices or protryding thru the skin. now use only open/closed or simple or comminuted to avoid confusion. assuming you mean open, thru the skin, you should have had surgery, plating and thuough cleaning of the bone a tissue. main danger is infection, if none it will heal in 8-10 week with plates gentle use starts earlier.

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.

Treating physician as bayonet position of a fracture of the radius and ulna can benefit from additional attention such as internal fixation in a 26 year old . This will take many months to heal and mal position can interfere with rotation

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.
