Pain in bone break site, much later in life

Is it common for sites of bone breakage to ache later in life? (even if properly set and healed)

I have seen this sometimes (i.e. wrist) but would not say it is "common" (as in "normally expected").

Not sure how common it is but I have experienced this. Fifteen years ago my arm was broken about 6" above the wrist, requiring plates/screws (which were removed after approx 18 months). My surgeon indicated that it was not that unusual, as I went back to see him when I first experienced this a few years after the last surgery. To be sure there was no issue, he x-rayed the arm again. Although I still have aches/pain at times, it does not appear to be getting worse with age.

It is common for everything to ache later in life. I have screws and other metal in me and I am reminded that they are there every single day.

Doesn't the bone break site become a weather forecaster of humidity levels?

I had a fractured pinky while in college and each time humid days were approaching or arrived, the pinky would hurt. The forecasting stopped eventually so the bone must have healed.

I broke a bone in my foot many years ago and it definitely reminds me every time the weather gets cold. Disappears once Spring arrives.

Had broken humerus about 30 or 40 years ago, broken collar bone 10 or so yrs agao.

They worked as weather pedictors for about five years. They no longer do that.

OTOH I like the late George Burns' line: If I wake up in the morning and nothing hurts, I must be dead.

I broke my wrist, collar bone, and ankle. i sometimes have aches and dull pains in the wrist that I broke, but not in the other areas.

Seems to be fairly common. I can attest that the screws and plates they used to put my right let back together ache like a son of a gun when it's cold...

Any joint that sustains a fracture through the joint is going to be susceptible to osteaoarthritis. But it may take 50 years to show up, or it may never show up.

My hip hurts much less in warm sunny weather, as others here have mentioned. Overall it is not a big enough problem that I would consider moving to a different climate to alleviate it.
