Hello,

If a similar patient comes to my opd I would suggest not to strain your kid. kindly ask your doctor and do calcium, vitamin D, thyroid and sugar level.

If this value is not normal it can cause fractures with minimum strain. hope Your child has a normal level of all these and it was the strain that caused the fracture.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Jilu Joseph, General & Family Physician

I recently fell on ice and landed on my right elbow. I knew immediately that it was likely broken. When I tried to get up, I put my right hand palm down and with all my weight tried to get up. That s when I heard the pop. The X-rays did not show a fracture, but It may appear after a week or two. The docs still think I have a radial head fracture based on my symptoms. The area behind my elbow is swollen. I can use my fingers but can t put palm face up or straighten arm or bend enough to touch my face. Why would it take a couple weeks for a fracture to be seen? What would cause the pop sound? Thank you! Miss Jenny

Have had fractured ribs for 5 months now. Dr. Said it could take up to a year to heal. So far I am wearing a TENS unit, have a pain cream, going to physical therapy, seeing a pain psychologist, taking neurontin, and have had a intercostal nerve block. Nothing is helping. My ribs pop, I have a reoccurring small bruise and multiple places that pop and a knot that moves up and down. Am I going to have this pain for an entire year?

i had a boxer s fracture back in october of last year. my right hand s 4th and 5th metacarpal tipi-ed up and i had a cast on for about five - six weeks. it pretty much healed to point where i had full usage of my hand again with no pain. the bone slightly jutted out a little as i decided not to have surgery. however last sunday i punched a wall while i was drunk and the next morning my hand was completely swollen. now the bone seems to be jutting out even more than before and there is discomfort when i touch the area. also there is pain in my ring finger with certain movements. it especially hurts when i push my ring finger into my thumb with a lot of force or try to grip an item with just my ring finger and thumb. i was looking for any advice besides, ask your doctor as i am trying not to miss work because of this. based on my description does my hand seem re-fractured?
