Right wrist injury

Back in May 2008, I fell in the shower and injured both my left and right wrist. I fell on my outstretched hands. I got soap in my eyes and as I tried to turn around I slipped while I had both hands on the wall. My right one in back of me and my left on the side of me and as I fell, both hands went all the way down until I reached the tub surround. I got left wrist surgery to repair the damaged ligaments on Dec. 17, 2008, but my right wrist is still painful and it clicks too and that is painful. It has been a while and I don't know why it is still sore. I didn't have it looked at because I wanted to get my left wrist taken care of first. I probably should have had them both looked at the same time. Can this be just a sprain or is it something more serious? The fact that it is still painful and it clicks and is painful when it clicks worries me that it might be more than a just a sprain.

This was because when I got surgery on my ankle in April, a few weeks later, I tried to take a shower and not put alot of weight on my ankle and that is how I fell. As I turned around I slipped

Any advice will be appreciated. Thanks in advance!
