Thumb pain after Luna bone fracture?

possibly referred

Injuries
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.

What is the treatment for avulsion fracture of the thumb?

It depends

Extremity-upper-fingers
It really matters where the frature is, how large it is and whether or not it involves the articular margin. It can be treated by a splint, cast or even surgery. The specifics would come from a hand surgeon who could tell you the correct treatment. Go see a specialist.

Dr. Barry Press answered:

How many days would it take for a thumb fracture to heal?

Depends

On where it is, joint involvement, etc. hand fractures properly cared for usually heal in 3-4 weeks. Stiffness after being immobilized too long is much more frequent than problems with fracture healing.
