I recently suffered a dislocation and fracture of my wrist

I recently suffered a dislocation and fracture of my wrist due a bicycle mishap. I’m a 67 year old female, very active and fit for my age. I have had a bone density test in the past, but can’t remember when. I have just started taking calcium & vitamin D supplements. Which doctor should I ask to have a bone density test done? How much calcium & vitamin D should I take per day to increase the chances of proper healing of my injury?

To Whom It May Concern, RE: R distal radius fracture and dislocation with major cartilage damage I write to you in regards to my injury that I received on the 22nd June 2014. I have enclosed copies of the x-rays from before and after surgery where the surgical team at Rotorua Hospital (New Zealand) have inserted a plate and pins…………………………………… I am currently located in New Zealand and As I have private medical insurance I am hoping to return home to the UK for the best possible rehabilitation and recovery, with the hope of finding a wrist specialist that can work with my injury as to consider the prospects of further surgery and possibilities to recover as much function to the wrist and hand. I am only 24 years old, a qualified electrician and passionate about racing motocross as well as a competitive physique athlete that spends a lot of time fitness training. As you can imagine facing the daunting future of limited use of my right arm I wish to consider all the absolute best options for further surgery and innovative possibilities for my wrist so I can perhaps be able to return to doing the things that a young active person like myself, loves and lives for. If you would like more information or to speak to me I would love the opportunity to discuss my injury with you further. My email address is YYYY@YYYY and I would be available to Skype with you if that is a possibility. Alternatively my contact number is +64 21 034 0794. I thank you for your time and consideration of my injury and I look forward to hearing from you if you have any advice or suggestions for how I can proceed, that would be so greatly appreciated. Yours sincerely,

I fractured my radius and badly dislocated my wrist in a fall. At 3 months post op (needed a plate and a bunch of screws) the fracture line is still visible. Does mean that it is not totally healed yet? Can I do everything like I did before the break?

Hi Dr. Agarwal, I m Eli. Thanks for taking the time to answer my question. On 10/16 I suffered a fractured and dislocated rib while practicing Brazilian Jiu-Jitusu. Front, right side, two down from my sternum. The pain has gone away for the most part but it is still sticking out where the rib meets the cartilage and I still experience pain if I lay on it or exercise strenuously. My question is what should I do now that it s not returning to it s original place? Should I see a thorasic surgeon or try a chiropractor? Both have been recommended. The third alternative is to do nothing and I m not as excited about that. Thank you for your help! -Eli
