Handling Of The Little Finger Attached To The Pen Is Bent Due To Collision?
at night, I want to ask about the pen that is attached to my pinky finger, the pen that is attached there that appears at the tip of my finger. when I was walking my little finger attached to the pen was hit by a hard object and after I observed the finger on which the pen was attached it looked a little bent from the beginning. how to handle it?
Broken toes can occur due to various trauma mechanisms such as crushed or falling heavy objects, kicking hard objects, run over. If the little toe is broken, it's likely that the patient will still be able to walk, but will feel pain in the pinky part, and swelling and shape changes can occur.
To determine the diagnosis of toe fractures, physical examination and X-ray examination are performed to see the type of bone fracture and changes in position between bones. The examination is also useful to determine the appropriate treatment to be done on the patient. Conservative measures include resting the part of the leg where a finger has broken a bone, applying a thickness to the affected area, compressing it with ice, and lifting the affected part higher than the position of the heart, especially when lying down. Surgery is performed by installing a metal device (such as a K-wire) to position the two bones back to normal, so that later a good bone-healing tissue is formed and the bones can be connected in the appropriate position.
After surgery the patient can feel pain for several days, therefore patients are usually prescribed pain-reducing drugs. Patients are advised not to move / rest the operated part for the first 1-2 weeks. Healing will occur at least 4-6 weeks and the metal wire will usually be released later. During this time patients are advised to wear soft footwear, keep the toe area clean, take control to change bandages regularly (especially in the first weeks), avoiding activities that cause severe impact on the foot area.
If there is a collision in the area with the wire and the outside looks bent, you should exercise control with an orthopedic specialist who is operating on you. Your doctor may take a re-x-ray to evaluate the location of your wire and whether your bone's position has changed due to the new impact. Handling of course depends on the results of the examination found later, the doctor can pair a cast / small cast to maintain the position of the toe or if necessary to reposition the wire. Thus the explanation from me, hopefully useful.
