Varies: It varies based in part on the stability of the fracture. Some fractures can be reduced and held well in a cast or splint or even just buddy taped to the other finger. Others are unstable and are not held in place with a splint and so often require a pun to hold reduction. I would discuss directly with your orthopedic surgeon. ...Read more
I had a fractured jaw, had 2 plates. Because of injury, I suffer from jaw dislocations, clicking, muscles in my jaw, head and neck hard as a rock, wake up with migraine. What can I do I can't eat steak?
Broken jaw: The first thing you should do is see and discuss your progress with the surgeon. Often reassurance is not a strong suit of surgeons. The energy dissipated into your jaw to break it is tremendous, and parts that don't break like the tmjs are often injured (nonsurgical injury). So the healing after jaw fractures may take months. The migraines are a separate issue not caused by fractures. ...Read more
