Broken wrist after a snowboarding accident. Pain with grinding and popping sound. What to do?

I broke my wrist a year ago and my arm snowboarding and had to have a kirshner wire for a few weeks and for a while it has really hurt a lot of the time and will go through stages where it is really painfull, especially when Im laying in bed or writing at school. It also does this weird grinding thing where it moves and pops out of place when I turn along with wierd cracking noises. What should I do?

Hello sir and welcome.

Thanks for that information and description. I would recommend a revisit to your doctor and also request for a control x-ray to check on the healing and positioning of the bone reduction which was done with the help of the kirschners wire. So please schedule an appointment at the earliest. Your doctor may also help you with mild pain management medication to help you to get through your daily activities.

Hope this helps.

Best wishes.
