Need better doc!: If your primary doc isn't sure, ask for a referral to a hand surgeon to look over your x-rays. We usually can tell old vs new fracture vs unrelated pathology. Make sure to bring x-ray films or disk to hand surgeon to look over. May need more detailed studies like a CT to tell. Casting is fine for a short while until diagnosis is more clear, as some fractures may take a while to show up.

They get fixed!: Surgery for torn tendons and fractured bones repairs the damages. You will probably get immobilized and need physical therapy once cleared by your surgeon. Bones get fixed by either pins or plates and screws to hold the pieces together, allowing movement before it gets stiff. Stitches are used to repair cut tendons, which allow scar tissue to fully heal the tendon edges. Good luck.

No: In colorado, the worker's compensation board has made the determination that osteoarthritis of the hand is not caused by work. There is differences in each state how they agree/disagree with this. In general, degenerative arthritis (wear and tear type) is from a lifelone accumulation of stress, and has genetic predisposition as well. Arthritis is not brought on by most labor jobs.
