Wrist fracture




anyone ever had a fractured wrist and if so any experience on plaster v wrist casts ??
Wrist is a general definition... can you be more specific or post xray for example?? I fractured distal part of the radius when I was a teenager...it healed fine with plaster cast.
 
My 15 year old son has played 4 years of injury free football and had this happen a month into his first lacrosse season.

Yikes. That sucks. Hope he is ok.

exactly the same type fracture I had, but mine was left hand. As I said mine healed with just a cast and no surgery. But since it happened during growth spurt my left arm is about 1cm shorter now.
 
So we went and had the sling taken off and the had cast put on. These are the pins sticking out, they’ll be pulled out in five weeks.
