I had an external fixitor for my broken wrist. I was in pain for six months and needed extended physical therapy. I had circulatory problems for over a year in my arm and hand. During that time I got a second opinion from a recommended hand surgeon outside of Dupage County, and he said, after examining pre-surgery ex-rays, that surgery was not necessary. It was a normal growth-bone break, and he saw no bone chips. Also, that this surgery is not recommended for women over 50 as it causes arthritis. This indeed did cause arthritis and my thumb is in a locked down position - which being my right hand has limited all capabilities of use except for typing.
(Two years later I had a small fracture on the other wrist - different doc and hosp, and they tried desperately to talk me into this unnecessary surgery - which I refused. That wrist with cast was a quick heal - and needed no physical therapy.
