K Wire removal pain
Hello Sir/Mam, my mother had a wrist fracture and did K Wire Surgery. After 1 month, K Wire removal was done. During the removal of K Wire from my Mother's wrist, it was really painful for her, but doctor said it's not painful. But after this entire process was done and coming back home she is experiencing pain while lifting lightly her hand. Doctor suggested painkiller for 10 days. Morning it's still paining. How many days this pain will be there? It's really frustrating for my mother for experiencing this pain. What to do?

That pain may continue for 6-8 weeks. You will have to apply ice pack intermittently at the site , apply some compression bandage and keep elevating her arm every now and then.
