Hi, thanks for writing to HCM.
Pain occuring at the fracture
site indicates that the fracture has not united completely (not achieved bony union). So, it is necessary to keep the wrist immobilized for a few more weeks.
Also, in elderly people osteosynthesis
(bone formation) is very slow when compared to younger individuals, so regular calcium supplements
are also needed till the bone unites.
Hope this information is helpful. Good day
