How Long Before My Stiches Come Out Of My Finger
Cut my middle finger. Got stiches they come out 1 week. How long for cut to completely close and can it reopen after stiches come out?
should be fine: The fingers are very vascular and heal quickly. 7-10 days, or 1 week for the fingers is usually enough time to let the finger get full closure, and heal. If the area looks as though it is not ready, the sutures can be left in for a few more days. Ultimately, weeks after, the area should be close to healed fully, but scarring and some discoloration can be normal. Best wishes. ...Read more
When there is no pai: Healing rate varies somewhat among people but generally slower as we get older. Often a simple fracture needs a about 6-8 wks to heal. If you still have pain, i would not push it. If the pain is gone and you have no deformity, you are probably ok to box again.

X-ray first...: With any finger injury you should have an x-ray to make sure that you don't miss a fracture, that may heal incorrectly.

Even with some fractures buddy taping is a good option, but this doesn't work for optimal healing of every finger injury. ...Read more

6-12 weeks: It takes about 6 weeks for most fractures to heal. In the case of a finger, i would expect the fracture to be healed @ 6 weeks. However, it will likely be stiff and sore. Expect an additional 6 weeks before going back to boxing. Wait until you are pain free. See a board certified orthopaedic hand surgeon for treatment. ...Read more
