How long does a broken finger take to heal??
Saw the doc, had an xray, the bottom bone of my pinky is broken. He gave me a splint, said use for 5 weeks. I take it off for showering, and it's STILL swelled up. Only hurts if I try bend it. Was using NSAIDS the first week. It's been 4 weeks today, I would expect to see some improvement, but I am not sure that I am. Someone said you have to learn to use your finger again afterwards, and gently flex it. Well doc didn't bother to tell me any of that. Should I take the splint off at the 5th week and start working on it? Will the break in the bone actually be healed then? I am not sure if the pain when I try bend it is due to inactivity, or the bone still broke. It is no longer bruised, but my skin is irritated from the tape, so it's all nasty from that too. Should I go back for another xray?? I have never broken anything, so I don't know what to expect for the entire healing process.

it takes about 6 weeks for a borken finger to heal and yes you do have to exercise it back so it can be as close to regular as possible.

you should keep the splint on and the finger immobilised as much as possible and try to keep it up example might be at night rest it on a pillow this will increase blood flow and therefore help healing. by text books 6 weeks for a bone to heal but it will be tender for longer. when your 6 weeks of immobilisation is up your Dr will refer you to a physio, public hospitals have physio hand clinics. allergies to tapes are common go and see the pharmacist at your chemist and he/she will have a cheap alternative. so leave the splint on, immobilise your hand keep it up and resting comfortably. don't try to do exercises yet and go for your follow up xray in 2 weeks but if the pain is not under control seek Dr's advice PS you should start to see a rapid improvement over the next few weeks
