Pain In The Hand Bones From Fractures?
Tonight.. I had a broken bone a year ago but it was only in a cast and I never checked it until the cast came off and I took it off myself.. I often feel aches and pains in my hand, do I need another X-ray right??
some fractures may not always require surgery, especially when the bone is only lightly fractured and only requires immobilization (the bone is not moved), for reconnection to occur. Therefore, a cast is placed to prevent movement during the healing period of the bone. However, bones that are still painful may require re-evaluation. There may not be a perfect bone connection or in the right direction. This condition certainly requires direct examination as well as supporting examinations such as x-rays. Therefore, we strongly encourage you to directly re-examine the condition of your bones with an orthopedic doctor or orthopedic surgeon. After that, do regular check-ups on a regular basis to see the progress of bone healing, whether it is in line with the plan or not. Here we attach an article about fractures. May be useful.
