    I disagree, how do you know that the fracture is not current?

    good point , however if the fx were current then they would not be treating the neuralgia? My physician says that would not be an issues in the immediate fx stage.

    That is great information to have! So, would it then be best to query the physician on this one?

    Possibly yes, we were not given the sum total of the documentation, but I agree if you cannot tell then query for clarification.
