How Long Does it Take For a Broken Finger to Heal?
Question Posted Friday April 20 2012, 11:51 pm
Ok so I was playing football and it bent my finger backwards and I got it x-rayed and I have a 1.1mm fracture (a broken bone) and they put it in a splint for a week. It looks like a nail file attached to my finger with tape (nothing special) and I dont think it will heal within a week. Well will it? I know the docter said it would but I honestly dont trust him. Wont it still be broken? (Btw haha, I broke my middle finger) =P

The recommendation from the doctor was to keep the hand elevated at all times to keep the swelling down. Talk about freaking out each and every teacher I had. I'm sure now that I'm older and can reflect on it, that I could have found away to sit in class without being so obvious. But heck I was 14 or 15 at the time and being able to sit in class and give the one finger salute and get away with it was priceless.
