My friend broken her wrist yesterday and it was bad her wrist looked like it had broken in two. The doctors in the ER put her under conscious sedation so that they could set her wrist. My friend has no medical insurance and when the orthopedic surgeon came in to talk to us he told her shed need metal rods and pins put into her arm because the break was so bad. He told her that he can't and won't do anything because she has no medical insurance at all. The question she has is what will happen to her wrist if she doesn't have the surgery? Because right now that's the way it's heading, so if anyone can help or give me an answer to this question I'd appreciate it.View Thread
