Weeks later and here i am, with an unhealed wrist. Could it be that i was misdiagnosed with a broken wrist?

In brief: Possibly?

Don't have much info about what happened to you, but wrist sprains can take just as long (and sometimes longer) than broken bones to heal.
There are also some wrist fractures (the scaphoid) that may not be obvious on x-rays performed immediately, but may be more apparent on x-rays done a week or so later. Good luck!
