Dr. Mark help....

Recommended Posts

My daughter broke her wrist at LL this year August 4th. She had a plate and 5 pins put in (to lengthin her wrist, it was crushed) no cast, and fully functional(off a bike) after 4 weeks. She then noticed an infection where the staples were and had to go on antibiotics to clear it up, which it did the first week.

We now have to wait another 4 weeks for another xray , when we thought she was good after 6 weeks(xrays were good, but infection came)

My question is to ride/race or not, do we let her get on a bike and see how it goes, or keep waiting worrying about infection? thanks in advance! Carole

If the infection has cleared that is immediately obvious. Whether or not the bone is healed is the issue. This problem seems like at least a three month issue, so I would most certainly not have her ride until she is cleared by her doctor.
