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!!!!?
My 12 year old daughter broken the sesamoid bone in her thumb 9 weeks ago. It was a complete fracture and it was separated a little. She was put in a cast for three weeks and got it off on february 28th. She's in no cast or anything right now. Shes still in lots of pain. Here's her symptoms.

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.
