Orthopedic I have a friend who broke her wrist her doctor wants her to get a X-ray every week is that normal?
No. Some fractures particularly to the sacaphoid may not be evident on initial films, and repeat x-rays are performed 2 weeks later to rule out this type of fracture. Weekly x rays are excessive unless the reduction is unstable and they are assessing the need for open reduction with internal fixation.
He must have a good. Reason? This is not the usual procedure.
