Customer Question

I was hit in the wrist and finger area by the air bag when my boyfriend lost control of the car. After wearing a cast for 6 weeks, a brace for 3 weeks, I started with physical therapy. My pt recently suggested I see a hand surgeon which I did. After x-rays and an MRI, what can I expect to hear from him today. My fracture is healed, but the pain in the fingers and palm area is hot and swollen. I feel pins and needles at times, sharp pain and tingling.
