Child had open reduction, internal fixation fracture of the shaft of the left radius procedure, arm pain. Cure?

My daughter had an open reduction and internal fixation fracture of the shaft of the left radius procedure when she was 9 yrs. old. The surgery went fine, and no problems. She is now 12 yrs old, and has been complaining about pain in that area. It seems like it is whenever we have cold, snowy or rainy weather. Can you give me some kind of an answer as to why her arm would pain her, under these weather conditions?

Welcome at healthcare magic.
The relation between change of weather & presence of pain is associated with biochemical changes in brain specially with endorphins which are natural pain killers in body.

If she is having recurrent pain at operative site then i will avice you to get her check from her orthopedic doctor as this may be an early sign of an infection.The pain can also be due to growth of bone.I will advice you to consult to your orthopedic doctor & get a x ray done .

With best wishes.

Hello, it's been 3 years since operation and the fracture is united. Go for implant removal which will help you getting away with these symptoms. Thank you
