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?

Evaluation: 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

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?

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?

What about MRI?: 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. ...Read more

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

I broke my wrist in aug, 2012.That was fixed but the ulna protrudes out, my hand is crooked?

I broke my wrist in aug, 2012.That was fixed but the ulna protrudes out, my hand is crooked?

Common: Unfortunately, this can be a common occurrence after a wrist fracture. The prominent ulna can be a result of two issues. First, malalignment of the radius bone can cause the ulna to be more prominent. Second, wrist fractures can sometimes cause instability of the distal radioulnar joint (druj). This can cause a prominent ulna too. I would recommend an evaluation by an orthopaedic hand surgeon. ...Read more
