Tenderness deformity. Usually tenderness, bruising (bleeding from the fracture) and if displaced at times deformity.
Like any broken bone. With hand fractures there is pain, swelling, bruising and some time deformity of the hand and fingers., some time numbness of the fingers. Thank you.
Pain and swelling. Onset of pain with swelling and stiffness should suggest to you to get an xray of your hand.
Can be normal. Sesamoids are normal bones within the hand, and vary in their number and location between individuals. They reside within tendons (the largest one in our body being the patella). Pain near a sesamoid can occur from injury or overuse, and treatment is based on symptoms ranging from activity modification, splinting, injection, or surgery. Consult with a hand physician for options that fit your specific complaints.
Need more info. It may be normal post-operatively, but where your surgery was and where the burning occurs is important information. Early consultation with your surgeon is important.
Need more info. Depends on the bone, fracture pattern, treatment, and rehabilitation of the injury. If you are concerned about treatment and prognosis, see a surgeon who specializes in treating hand injuries.
Need more info. A sprained hand is a vague diagnosis. A sprain implies injury to ligaments within your hand, but more severe injuries such as ligament tears and fractures can sometimes be called sprains. Also, sprains in small joints of the hands can sometimes lead to progressive stiffness if not adequately rehabilitated. I would recommend evaluation by a physician who can better diagnose your injury, preferably a hand surgeon.
Yes. Best to have this appropriately diagnosed and treated early.
Pain, swelling, bruise. Hand and wrist injuries that result in immediate swelling or bruising should be evaluated by a physician, preferably an orthopaedic surgeon, soon after the injury as xrays may be necessary. Some fractures can occur without significant swelling or bruising, so pain may be the only symptom.
Hand fracture. If the fracture is subtle then there may just be little or no swelling. The more severe the fracture the more swelling you will see. There also may be a gross deformity present if the fracture is displaced.
Pain and swelling. Most fractures cause pain and tenderness at the site. Bruising is often present and if the bones are displaced or moved, there will be a deformity.
Exam and X-ray. Any significant hand trauma should be seen urgently. Till then clean skin, and apply ice. An x-ray will generally find fracture, but often when first occurs, may miss a hairline fracture, or one in the many bones of the hand. If clinically suspect even after 'normal' x-ray, may need ct scan, mri, bone scan. A fracture may show up with regular x-ray a bit later, when calcium there. C a hand ortho.
Xray. Pretty much the only test available.
Quite simple, it- -is a fracture of any bone in the hand, of which there R many, & if U include the wrist, add 6 more. The # in the hand is about 19.
Hand fractures can. Take 6-8 weeks to heal for simple long bone (finger and metacarpal) injuries. Wrist bones, open injuries, injury with significant soft tissue damage can take longer. Joint fractures if displaced often need more than just splints or casts if the fragments are not lined up. Sometimes splinting by a hand therapist or use of a dynamic set up is needed to allow the joint to move. Surgery can be needed.

I have wrist drop due to bone fracture from last four month now I hve to wait or go for the nerve treatment?
Wrist drop. This must have been quite a fracture. What was the treatment at the time of the fracture? Did you have surgery or not? Yes definitely get the nerve checked and repaired if possible - its already been 4 months.
WRIST DROP TX. Wrist drop can be difficult to treat follow up with your doctor and get a neurology consult. Physical therapy all be needed to rehab and get strength back post op.
How much time it will take to recover frm feumeur bone fracture? Nail is inserted on 3rd jan. Knee is getting swelled all the time
Fracture healing. Almost all fractures take at least 8 weeks to heal but can take longer depending on your physical condition and any other medical problems you may have. Following your surgeons advice as to when to walk on it and maintaining a proper diet with calcium and vitamin d intake are critical to good healing.
Femur Fracture. Sometimes patients also have a knee injury with the femur fracture that was difficult to diagnose initially with the fracture... Have you knee examined... It might be just soft tissue injury and may take 3 months to heal... Same as the thigh bone fracture. Good luck!
