Question: Knucle dislocated or broken 2yrs ago

 sam_spetton - Sun Dec 18, 2005 3:17 am

Hi, I did that stupid thing & got angry, punched a chair & now two years later I want to fix my right pinky finger knuckle which has been displaced. At the time I did it there was hardly any brusing although my right hand was swollen.

My question is can I get this simply crunched back into place? I assume they will want to take x-rays etc. My hand works fine although when I do some tasks I do have discomfort. One task is using a rolling pin on a ball of dough - placing my hands on top of the rolling pin (not using handles) & as I roll the pin over my bung knucle it hurts a bit & is really uncomfortable.

Is it worth getting this fixed? Can something go wrong trying to fix it? Is it brocken? How much will it cost (Australia)?

Sorry for all the questions & I really really apreciate your help. I don't have much money & that is why I am asking here - I can not afford the doctor consultation & the public hospital would most likely tell me to go away.

Thanks again - sam.
