Hello,My son broke his pinky a couple of weeks ago.
The first time I went to the doctor, they put him in a splint cast for 10 days due to the swelling. After getting x-rays a second time, they said it didn’t look like it was healing correctly but they decided to put the hard cast on.
He wore this one 7 days.
We x-rayed again yesterday and they said it was definitely healing incorrectly (it is the top of the pinky (they call it the growth bone)and it is 20 degrees crooked off a straight line).
They decided to put it again in a cast and talk with some other colleagues to decide what to do next.
Thay don’t know if they should rebrake the bone and reset it or let it grow without the cast hoping that it will grow somewhat straight.
My question is should they rebrake it now, after all that has been done? Do you think it would grow normally without problems if it not rebroken?
