    Hi David,  my daughter broke her wrist at the beginning of the year and I remember her having all sorts of pain and different sensations when the cast was taken off.  A wrist/hand  break is extremely painful and, sad to say, takes quite a long tme to recover.... sorry.  I hope you have been given guidelines as to the best  pain relief David, if not, maybe a phonecall to your GP or even ask a pharmacist as these days they are quite highly trained in helping some problems from the  public !   All the best

    pain and breaks are normal, but why are they waiting 6 freaking weeks!?!  SIX WEEKS!?! it should be cared for early or it will heal incorrectly. WHY are they waiting? What am i missing? did they give you a reason?
