Suggestions for post forearm surgery
Hi, My right hand's forearm operation was held on 9th October. There bone grafting and plate implanted. I had removed slab after consulting doctor on11th November. After that I went for physiotherapy for 15 days. 90% swelling and hand movements has been recovered but swelling around this bone as shown in picture is still there. My hand looks slant because of that. Please suggest what to do.

Looks like reasonably good results for a very bad fracture. I suggest you first wait for the bone healing to complete before thinking of procedures for better cosmetic results. The bone has to consolidate fully which will take 3-6 months following which the slanting of the hand may be addressed.
Next Steps
Please visit an Orthopedic surgeon.
