Thanks for posting at HealthcareMagic.

First, i would like to inform you that Continuous usage on a premanent basis of any drug is harmful. Routine ingestion of signoflam in excess may lead to sever acidity and ultimately may also result in peptic ulcers. But controlled usage along with milk consumption or in some cases an antacid drug does not creat any problems.

If your doctor has checked the xray of your elbow joint then we can assume that the fracture has healed completely and does not have any issues. Sometimes nonspecific pains arise in old trauma sites which can be treated with controlled use of pain killers such as aforementioned signoflam.

Hope this solves your querry. If you have more questions, do let us know.
