How Long Does It Take To Heal A Fracture In The Right Little Finger?
Morning, I am 18 years old, and I have a fracture on the right little finger, how long it will take to recover
Hello Rizky, Thank you for the question.
Have you sought medical help to overcome your condition? Have you consulted an orthopedic specialist? Treatment of broken bones depends on the patient's age, broken bones, and severity of fractures. Broken or cracked bones have symptoms of pain, swelling, open sores, impaired movement, deformation. If the bone is just cracked, the doctor will usually suggest not immobilizing the fractured bone that can use splints. In general, the complete bone healing process lasts up to 3 months. In general, soft new bone will form at 2 weeks and soft bone will begin to mature and hard at 4 weeks onwards. This bone healing process can take place optimally if you undergo the treatment recommended by your doctor. Therefore, please consult with your orthopedic specialist if you have not already done so. The doctor will examine you and examine the results of your X-rays to determine the next treatment. The process of bone healing depends also on the severity of the bone fracture and your health condition. Please discuss this further with the doctor.
I hope this helps.
