Question: I broke my wrist last year and ended up having surgery. Over the past couple weeks, I’ve started to feel pain in my wrist and almost feel like my bones are ripping apart. Could this be because of the cold weather or is it an affect from my surgery?
Answer: You could be having some discomfort from cooler weather, or it is possible that one of the screws is backing out a little and causing some pain. If it continues to bother you then a trip to your orthopedist for an evaluation and x-ray would be in order.
