Broken wrist? Anyone?

Just two months ago, I had two breaks and required a cast for five weeks. Even though it’s been two weeks since the cast came off, my wrist is still very painful, especially on the pinky side. I’m worried because the pain is worse on the opposite side of the fractures, which was also bruised and swollen before. Wondering if this is normal or if I should see my doctor again.

It’s important to listen to your body. Persistent pain, especially on the opposite side of the fractures, warrants a follow-up with your doctor.

Such pain after a cast is normal, but worsening pain on the opposite side of fractures is concerning. See your doctor for a follow-up to ensure proper healing.
