I fell down the steps almost 3 weeks ago and broke my wrist. It was in a splint for a week. Its been in a cast almost 2 weeks. I did not have to have surgery. My question is how long does the swelling and pain last? Almost every morning I wake up my fingers and thumb are swollen but as the day goes on it lets up. I also have trigger thumb on my broken wrist arm. The fiber cast cast is really tight where it goes over my thumb and across my palm. I went back to my orthopedic dr as I wanted him to cut it off around my thumb but he told me no, said it has to be tight to heal.
Also I am having a burning sensation on my skin under the cast. I have never broken a bone before so I don't know what is normal or not. Anyone experience the burning sensation?
