Patient :I broke my arm when I was 7. Both the radius and ulna bones. They did not set it because in the xray they appeared to be lined up but they were lined up with the wrong bone. Radius to ulna and ulna to radius. Now my arm is crooked and they said there was no point in re breaking it to fix the problem unless I was experiencing pain which I'm not. I'm wondering what the long term effects are or could be?
