Hello

What is your medical question exactly?

avulsion fracture of what?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
sorry the question is why is there still pain after 7 weeks? I did not have this pain initially and as time is going by it seems to be bothering me more?
Expert:  DrRussMD replied 1 year ago.

If you have a torn ligament, or tendon, this can cause pain for months.

I suggest that you get an MRI to look to see if a ligament or tendon is in need of repair.

It makes no sense that you didn't have pain initially and you do now

what did your doctor say about this?
