I broke my wrist, badly, multifragmentary fractures, back in January. Got excellent treatment at a&e and got away without having surgery. My hand is still very stiff and I get a lot of pain down the ulna side, although it was the radius I broke, there is a shortening of the radius and they tell me pain on the other side is normal. I am using my hand a lot more now and doing my exercises at home. The problem is every time I attend the hand therapy session at hospital I got a lot of pain in the back of my hand, it lasts for days and stops me using it as much. I've told the physio about it but she didn't seem too bothered and told me to take pain meds! I've started to dread going.
