Back in September, I fell awkwardly playing hockey and broke something in a thumb joint on my right hand. Last night, I blocked a shot, and I’m thinking that I my have broken the pinky on the same hand. Maybe not, but it’s a good enough excuse to finally go have the thumb looked at.
Q. What are they doing for broken fingers these days?
I haven’t noticed many people walking around with old fashioned casts, and I’m hoping to avoid the kind of monstrous cast I had when I smashed the pinky on my left hand back in kindergarten.
So, what’s the last medical practice for broken fingers and thumbs?
