My 14 year old broke his wrist last summer and it didn't heal properly. He is scheduled for surgery to correct it in a few weeks. The surgeon requested a set of x-rays a month ago and is now requesting another set of the same, a few days before surgery. My son has had about 5 different sets of x-rays of this wrist over this past year - should I be concerned about the radiation or is it really not a big deal?
Again, the latest x-rays were taken less than a month ago and the doc is asking for more.
