Orthopedics Questions? Ask an Orthopedist for Answers ASAP
I am an Orthopaedic surgeon and I would be happy to help you today.
There can be a difference in appearance of the wrist after surgery for distal radius and ulna.
There can be several different sources of this difference.
It can be due to swelling post surgery, slight difference in alignment of the bones compared to normal position or due to slight difference between the lengths of two bones as a result of injury and surgery.
It is not something which you did that caused this difference in appearance. In majority of patients this is not a cause of concern and the slight difference between the two sides in appearance is compatible with absolutely normal function.
Feel free to ask any follow-up questions.
