Ds pulled dd by up by the arm yesterday and it was pretty obvious something had happened as she stopped using the arm immediately. We went to a and e and they said it was a pulled elbow. On the third time they think they got it back in place so let us go home. However she's still not using at all almost 24 hours later. They said it will gradually get better but there's no improvement really. Dp said we'd go back this afternoon if still the same.... Anyone with any experience?

You need to go back with her.

Could be broken, Ds had this last summer they said no break but still wasn't using it and in pain, so rang a and e and they checked the xray, and said 'oh yes it is broken!, can you bring him back.
