Instead of wasting any time or resorting to home remedies to relieve her of pain, her parents simply rushed her to the hospital to get immediate medical attention. This saved her elbow. Complicated fractures with multiple bone pieces were detected on X-ray when the young lady was examined. Immediate medical attention was required as there was pain, swelling, deformity and restricted movement at the right elbow. A complex operation was performed, and bone pieces were fixed with special plates and screws. After three months of the procedure, she is now able to move her arm normally.
