Has anyone's child ever experienced a broken arm with the humerus bone?
My daughter fell off her 4 wheeler Saturday and broke the bone right under her shoulder blade. Complete fracture. She had surgery yesterday- "closed reduction" to get the bone back in position.
Where the break is, they are unable to cast it so she is in a splint and let me just tell you.... it's miserable for her. Her arm is weighted down by plaster around the break, along with ace bandages all up and down her arm. Bandages wrapped around her chest and arm to hold it in place as well as a sling around her neck and wrist (doesn't even support her arm). I have to leave it in that positon. We have yet to attempt to bathe. It will be sponge bathing for awhile because she screams when I try to take the ace bandage off around her chest. Not able to put a shirt completely over her due to the ace bandage on her chest. Yeah, I could take it off, but it does support the positon of her arm and she screams bloody murder.
Just wondering if ayone else went through this?
