pain in wrist after removal of cast of 6 weeks
I had a fall from a height and had broken the bones at the joints of my wrist of my right hand. It was on POP cast up to a bit above the elbow for the past 6 weeks. The cast was removed today and to be followed up with some physiotherapy treatment 2 weeks later.While under the cast i did not feel any discomfort. well today i feel pain and the wrist area is a bit swollen.Pain at the elbow area if i were to stretch or fold my arm beyond a certain amount is normal and it should disappear with physio the Doctor told me.What can I take for the pain and will it disappear over time or is there something wrong? what exercises can i do while waiting for the physio to start in two weeksTKS.
