Sore wrist which hurts a lot, can't pressure on wrist. Chances of fracture?

My wrist has been sore for over a month now. I may have hurt it breaking a fall backwards when I was on my honkers, but I don t remember it being sore straight after. The pain isn t as bad as it was, but now I can t put pressure on or lean on my hand/wrist or bend it back. As it has gone on so long, do you think it could be broken?

Thank you for the query.

Yes, it could be the fracture. You never know, that is why after trauma which gives risk of fracture, X-ray should be performed. Fractures usually get healed in 4 weeks if injured area is immobilized. Otherwise, it can heal much longer. Moreover, in some cases not healed property fracture can give lack of function of the wrist. That is why you should consult your doctor and have an X-ray performed anyways.

Hope this will help.
