So I slipped at home on 5th Feb at 5am which resulted in a dislocated and fractured left wrist. Had surgery the next day to have a plate and screws put in. Then had a half cast put on. Went back on Wednesday arvo just gone 21st Feb for a full cast to be put on. It’s a fibreglass one although I still can’t get it wet due to the surgery wound. Pain was manageable till I got the full cast on. Last night and today the pain has increased with nothing helping. Pain over the fracture site almost feels like someone has put a set of vice grips on my wrist. But the cast isn’t too tight. I actually think it’s too loose. I think I have up to about 10mm of movement where the wrist can move up and down. Pain is horrible. Should I go back to the fracture clinic first thing Monday morning and have looked at and possibly redone??? Pain is terrible and although it’s my weak hand due to work I need it to be functioning when it’s healrd with no issues or I will end up being non operational. Thoughts???? Thanks in advance. Thommo
