Forum Name: Bone trauma and fractures
|MikeW - Mon Feb 27, 2006 6:06 pm||
I found this site for another reason, but while i'm here i'd like to ask about this if I may..
I had a boxers fracture, needed rebreaking after it healed as it was out of tolerance - I had a GA for the rebreak and they used a cast to realign it. That was about 18 months ago.
Since then, particularly in last 3 months at work (desk job) I get tingling in the affected "little finger" which extends down my hand. The tendon associated with that finger protrudes, and can be a little tender.
My questions are, a) i'm assuming its not norma? b) what could be done about it, aside from resetting c) Was the previous fix inadequate?

Any advice would be appreciated please - I should go to a dr really I guess. The tingling is getting worse and interfering with my work (typing).
