Thumb pain after luna bone fracture?

1 doctor answer

possibly referred: The lunate bone is not far from the base of the thumb, and so it is possible that your pain is a referred pain from the lunate fracture. Another possibility is that in addition to the lunate fracture, you have also sustained a bone or ligamentous injury to the thumb itself. Thank you.
