Boxer Fracture

Posted , 1 user is following.

Positive I am coming off of a boxers fracture from cast and all. After healing (regrettably) I never told my doctor that my pinky's(5th metacarpal) pops in and out if I push on it. Any advice about if it will heal or do I need surgery. Thanks <3

    Tell your doctor.

      The doctor after my last xray said I was good and my hand healed completely. Made a mistake not telling them and was just looking for advice so I don't have to go back.

      And its easy to tell everyone "tell the doctor" we got things to do my man. But health is more important right.
