Advise re broken wrist please

Broke my wrist on Monday & had it manipulated back into position at A&E. Was told there might be need for surgery but doc at fracture clinic on Thursday was impressed with work done at A&E - so far, so good. However, he noted in letter to my GP that there was a risk of displacement & earlier today I dropped a bag of flour on it (stupid, I know but it was feeling a lot better & the kids were hassling me to make pancakes for fathers day breakfast!). It really hurt at the time (nearly fainted) but has eased off quite a bit now - do you think I'll be alright till next fracture clinic appointment on Thursday or should I get it looked at soonerconfused I can live with pain for a few days, just worried that I've displaced it. Any experience/advice welcome.

I'd get it looked at ASAP

Does it hurt more now than it did before? If it does, I would get it looked at sooner. I've had a displaced wrist and it was not pretty!

The pain is similar to a couple of days after the break, so a lot more than before I dropped the flour today but nothing like it was at the time of the break. Guess I'd better get myself back to A&E then ...

I would definitely get it looked at!
