    Unhappy External fixator wrist

    I fell and broke my wrist 2 weeks ago. Itís a Colles break and was sent from ER to follow up with an orthopedic surgeon specialist for the hand. I had surgery to put a plate in to hold bones together. Instead of a 90 minute surgery it turned into 4 1/2 hours. Dr. Was unable to use the plate and I woke up with an external fixator since there were too many bones that were behind those showing on X-ray.

    I had stitches removed yesterday and dr made adjustments with the external fixator. This is even more painful than it was after surgery. I did have a pain pump for 2 days post surgery. I know that was a godsend.

    I wonder if anyone else has had the fixator and terrible pain after adjustments. I will have the fixator on for 8 weeks total. Iím also thinking of how bad it will be when dr removes it.

    Iíd appreciate hearing about someone else that has gone through this ordeal.
