Customer Question
About a five weeks...

About a five weeks ago I jammed my finger. A week ago I went to see my family doctor because my middle finger was still sore and swollen. An xray

Doctor's Assistant: Any recent injuries? How long have you been dealing with the swelling?

Five weeks. Dr put a splint on because he said I had a torn tendon. I question he reasoning. I do not see the tendon can heal properly if it was not stablized until four weeks after the enjury. Should I see an orthopedic dr.

If your doctor suspects a torn tendon you should 100% see an orthopedist who can perform the right exam to see what else needs to be done. Some tendons needs to be repaired while others can heal on their own.

Especially because it's the middle finger it's important to address it and also follow up with physical therapy to make sure the finger heals properly.
