Bone not set

My adult son did not have his hand bone set when it was broken 4 weeks ago.
What are his risks?
What would happen if he went to the Dr. now? The bone is currently 1 1/2 inches thick.

  1. Why was it not set?..did the dr. not think it needed to be set or did your son opt not to have it looked at? IF he kept using his hand he kept shifting the broken bone and preventing healing. Go to the doctor. He will tell you what can be done. Good luck, Mya
