i fell just over two weeks ago onto my outstretched hands. In A&E they thought it was just sprains and I was sent home with a splint on left hand. Hospital rang two hours later to say that X-Ray had been reviewed by radiologist and did show a small fracture to ulnar styloid. I was put in resting plaster but yesterday Orthopaedic Consultant looked at original X-Ray and said it was not broken so I am now back in splint! It is still very painful in the same area, particularly if I try to flex the wrist (with splint off). Is it unusual to get this sort of disagreement? I'm not convinced it is just a sprain as I get intense pain in the ulnar area if I make the wrong movement. It seems OK in splint though. Any advice or experiences would be welcome. Thanks.
