Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hello. I'm Dr. Phil, licensed and practicing internist. Excellent service is my goal.
please enter chat
Can I ask your first name?
nice to meet you
I'm sorry this happened.
that is terrible
let me try to address your concerns
1)as far as healing just rest
your body will heal on its own.
try to drink milk or take in calcium and vitamin D to help bone healing
2)you should be in the sling for at least a couple weeks
did they set up seeing an orthopaedic doctor? or your GP?
keep the sling on until you see them
it will probably be 2 weeks at least
4-6 until you are back to full function
you can go to your job after 2 weeks but no heavy lifting or use of the arm
if you start too early the arm won't heal right
well you have to let your body heal
you would be taking a risk by going back early
you have a decision to make Kai
let your body heal or go back early
however, let's not get ahead of ourselves
maybe the fracture clinic will call you and say it is minor and you can go back early? who know?
no, the sling is all you need
you could. yes.
like an ACE wrap
still you might need more
bones take time to heal
any more questions Kai?
probably a week or so
Did I do good work for you today Kai?
No, nothing until you hear from fracture clinic
just let it heal
would you mind rating positive for me ?
before leaving? I greatly appreciate it
thank you Kai
have a great day
