boxers break 5th metac.
I have boxers break 5th metac. on right hand.
Was in gutter splint for 2 weeks. Dr. just put on leather like splint with metal in it at inside of hand, start phy. therapy tomorrow for fingers, 1x a week for 6 weeks.
Hand hurts worse with this splint and still have alot of swelling in fingers, is this normal.
How long normally does someone need to take presc. pain meds, did this 19 days ago. Thank you,Teresa
