You have described the situation very well.It does appear that your son's fracture has not healed as he would not still be in pain if it had.The pain disappears when his arm is wrapped.This type of fracture usually takes about 6 weeks to heal. The problem here is that a backslab alone does not seem to support his arm and wrist adequately.I do agree that putting the cast back on will be traumatic for him when the time comes to remove it. This is a real dilemma.It would be difficult to get a second opinion at this stage, but given the problems you have had up to now including the unacceptable result of applying a cast that caused 3 pressure sores, it may be the way to go.
