What's wrong with my daughters thumb?!?!?!?! Please help I'm very scar!
Question: What's wrong with my daughters thumb?!?!?!?! Please help I'm very scared!!!!?
Swelling of whole hand
Little bit of bruising
Tingling in thumb and index finger
Non-stop throbbing in thumb
Coldness in thumb at times
Unable to move thumb and index finger
Twitching in thumb which causes lots of pain
Aching up whole arm and hand
Thumb looks kinda dislocated
She sees her orthopedic hand specialist on Monday. I've been icing her hand and given her painkillers. But she's still in much pain.
I personally think it also might be dislocated too and might be pressing on a nerve.
Could her thumb still be broken?
What else could be wrong?
What will the doctors do?
Don't say goto a doctor and get x-rays right now. She said she will wait until her appointment. I just want to try to figure out what's wrong! Thanks!
You can't really tell what is wrong with it without an X-Ray. Chances are, it wasn't completely healed when it came out of the cast. Your daughter's thumb healed its self without a cast increasing the chance for it to heal improperly. This causes A LOT of pain, bruising and about everything you said. The doctors are probably going to have to re break it. If it is sitting on a nerve, then the doctors will either have to break it still, or try and re locate it.
