I got broken radius and ulna half arm cast almost 3months there is a bit pain in my wrist for quite sometimes what is that? What should I do?
The forearm is a very complex part of our skeleton that relies on a smooth relationship between the wrist and the elbow. Breaking your radius and ulna disrupts that relationship and may be the cause of your pain. In addition to that, the broken bones are just part of a wider injury
discuss this pain with the person treating your fracture or a second opinion if you need more information. ...Read more
I've removed kwires from my healed ulna and radius fracture and I would like to know when will I get full motion of wrist and when will it be stronger?
Much depends upon th: E extent of injury, residual deformity, tissue factors, general health etc, but assumong good health and adequate alignment for a n injury that was treatable with expectant decent results it typically is a 3-4 month procress from injury to feeling more normal but subtle things can linger for months later. Despite returning to full activity long before that. Note this is a very general answer. ...Read more
Are there any long term effects on wrist or hand of surgically fixed (plates and screws) proximal fractures in both ulna and radius of same forearm?
Possibly: The long term effects are related more to the fracture itself, rather than the paltes and scews. In normal wrist motion the radius bone rotates around the ulna bone, so a fracture tio either bone can cause a deformity which can limit this rotation. ...Read more
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?
Throbbing pain in wrist, compound fracture radius ulna 14years ago? Two metal rods still in place today. Allergic to anti inflammatory medication.
It certainly may:
The break (fracture) extends into a joint itself in an adult. In such cases it may be very important to restore the joint by surgery.
In children it is not rare that both forearm bones are broken like a green stick snapping (we call these "greenstick" fractures); usually treated well in a cast, often including the elbow.
In adults, "both bone" forearm fractures usually require surgery to fix. ...Read more

Bones heal at equal: Rates given there is equal amount of injury. So more energy into an injury with greater fragmentation may seem to be something that takes longer to heal or a bone that was displaced or has a poor blood supply. The ulna may have a small styloid fracture commonly with a radius fracture and it may seem in this case to "heal" faster as the fracture is less complex in this certain situation ...Read more
If I snapped my radius and ulna in half basically, how long until I can lift weights again? I have 2 plates and 12 screws.
At least 6 weeks.: Bones generally gain an appreciable amount of strength back six weeks after a break. Strength/solidity/calcification can continue beyond that, but six weeks is a good marker. ...Read more

Broke my wrist (left radius) 10 months ago, still can't put much weight on it. Do you think it may have healed improperly?

Hello, I have a malunion in my radius and also my ulna I have metalwork present, I rebroke it at the end of the metalwork, can it be fixed?
Yes: Depending on the severity of the deformity and fracture, and level of function, a decision can be made to immobilize it until healed again, or to remove the hardware and re-address the fracture surgically. Often with malunions this requires cutting the bone, re-setting and fixing it and probable augmentation with bone graft and immobilization. ...Read more

Yes: I assume you had a plating of your radius and ulna if they were broken mid forearm.3 yrs post-op your fractures should be well- healed and there is no contraindication to returning to contact sports. Check w/ your ors as he knows your condition. Removing the plates and then returning to contact sports has a higher incidence of re- fracture. Good luck! ...Read more

Pain in scaphoid, lunate, and radius area. Intense amount of pressure. Dr. said my ulna is shorter than radius. Could that cause my issues? No injury.
Probably not!: Your radius and ulna are the 2 bones in your forearms and they are normally of different lengths, so to say that one is shorter than the other is a nonsensical statement. That's like telling you that your parents are older than you are. Obviously true but irrelevant to your concern! Now, as to why the bones in your wrist hurt I am not sure but a rheumatologist might give you some insights or a han ...Read more
What is causing my constant wrist pain? I chipped my ulna about 4 years ago less then an inch from my wrist. I keep having pain, swelling, and something feels like its not in place. I feel the need to keep cracking it to put whatever it is back in place.
It all depends upon the severity of the fracture and the length of treatment
sometimes I do not send to therapy but allow the patient to follow up in a week or two and note progress (or lack of)
other times the other extreme...Therapy is clearly needed often 3-4 x per week. ...Read more

What to do if I cannot lift my head and it hurts all the way down between my shoulder blade down to my ulna nerve + wrist?
Nearly hard lump located at the distal radius that almost extends to the medial aspect of the ulna. Not painful and not very moveable. Ideas?
Wrist joint lump?: If near or at your wrist it is likely a synovial cyst or "ganglion." It is a piece of joint lining that is growing & making joint fluid that forms in a hard lump from a joint where it starts. Unfortunately, the only Rx that may be permanent is surgical with careful attention to removing the stalk between the cyst and the joint. Hitting it can break the cyst but it only reforms larger. ...Read more

Hello I broke my left radius and ulna about a week ago. How long do you think it would take to heal and does breaking multiple bones make your recovery time longer than usual.
6-8 weeks: Is the usual time frame we quote people with regard to bone healing. Yes, breaking more bones at the same time can prolong the recovery as there is also a lot of soft tissue repair that has to take place. You are young so more likely to be at the shorter end of the time frame. If you are a smoker - STOP! This has been shown to speed up bone repair. ...Read more
