Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 11 months ago

I am sorry you fractured your wrist

how old are you?

the treatments depend on how severe the fracture is and your ability to tolerate orthopedic wrist surgery.

are you icing your wrist to help decrease pain and inflammation

you should be elevating your wrist as well to decrease swelling

do you have an appointment to see an orthopedic wrist surgeon?
