Hi dear experts,
my moms slipped and fell 2 weeks ago
resulted in fracture of left distal radius
closed reduction were done for twice and
the xray attached was taken yesterday
could anyone of you tell me if operation is inevitable or just to leave it healing by itself?
Thank you very much.
Thank you Dr Vinod.
My mom is around 60.
So is there any big difference to go in earlier or to wait for few months to see if healing occur?
based on the xray I provided, is it more suggested to proceed to open reduction?
really realy thanks for your response.
