How long would a surgery to fix a mal-rotated finger take you recover from?

How long would a surgery to fix a mal-rotated finger take you recover from?

That is a question: That is a question for the surgeon. I am assuming your condition has been present from birth. Recovery time has a variety of factors. How much corrective surgery is required, ligaments, blood vessels, bones, and tendons involved, complications, anesthesia, and post-operative physical therapy... Basically ask the surgeon for his best estimate of healing time and realize it is an educated guess. ...Read more

Hi I noticed my left testicle is slightly rotated and is elevated. I notice after I masturbate that sometimes my testicle will rise up and drop back?

Man stuff: The positioning of these glands is variable. They are moved up and twisted around by your cremaster muscles and it sounds like yours is working a little extra. It's not a problem unless you start having major pain. Be sure you have support for them while you are enjoying your body. Best wishes/ ...Read more

Ok so im a gymanast and my wrist started to crack when I rotated it and now it hurts to hold myself in a handstand, front support, and swinging on bar?

Ok so im a gymanast and my wrist started to crack when I rotated it and now it hurts to hold myself in a handstand, front support, and swinging on bar?

Physical exam first: An exam by your doctor is the first place to start. S/he may order an Xray if there is concern for a fracture. If the Xray is clear you may have a problem with your cartilage that only an MRI can see. Don't ignore this, because gymnastics shouldn't be painful. Your problem will get worse without a proper evaluation and a plan to correct it. Good luck! ...Read more

What is it called when one ilium is rotated up and forward and the other rotated back and down? Pelvic torsion?

What is it called when one ilium is rotated up and forward and the other rotated back and down? Pelvic torsion?

SI joint strain: Judging from your question, it sounds like you might have sacro-ilium joint dysfunction. This can happen incidentally due to misalignment along the the lower part of the spine in relation to the plane of the hips. Therefore, one side can "pull" which causes the rotation. Usually physical therapy can help strengthen the weaker side and re-align the hips if someone is experiencing soreness and pain. ...Read more

I broke my finger and it got casted. Finger is now rotated, and surgery is probably necessary. Could I hold off with surgery for a couple months?

Broke my hand and the 5th metacarpal rotated 40 degrees 3 manipulations, still hurts and a problem what do I do?

Broke my hand and the 5th metacarpal rotated 40 degrees 3 manipulations, still hurts and a problem what do I do?

Rotated?: 5th metacarpal neck fractures (boxer fxs.) are very common after closed fist injury. Angulation is very common but malrotation is not. Closed reduction (Jahss) is a common treatment followed by splinting. Angulation is well tolerated by the 5th metacarpal and 30 degrees or less is acceptable. Metacarpal shaft fractures that are malrotated require surgery. Best of Luck! ...Read more

If you can do them yourself, wonderful otherwise ask your doctor to get a referral to a good physical therapist for further assistance.

I hit my bby toe last yr, it swelled, turned black&pained. It has grown back rotated & the "knuckle" is big. Should I see a dr? Thanks

Yes: It sounds like a bedroom fracture. The small toe is often broken rounding the bed on the way to the bathroom at night. If the toe is deformed, a corn will likely form at some point. You may wish to see a podiatrist for evaluation and x-rays. Surgical repair may be indicated. ...Read more
