Had a fall and dislocated right shoulder. Fingers are swollen and pain is unbearable - Online Doctor Chats
Hi morning doctor
how are you
hope you remember me
I am again wanting to discuss my mothers case
I'll give you the complete background
so that you have a better understanding of her situation
she had fallen down in month of august
and dislocated her right shoulder joint
since it was just dislocation and not broken
her othropaedic doctor advised to just keep her hand in the shoulder belt
for 1 and half month
but immediately the next day she was feeling gidiness and was admitted to hospital
it was just precautionary and was discharged on the next day
she was infact recovering well
and post 1 and half month the orthopaedic doctoer suggested to remove the belt and the healing was good
and she was advised to start physiotherapy
while all was going good
all of sudeen she started having swelling in the fingers
and the pain was unbearable
and till date the swelling is there and also the pain
also now a days she feels more weak than what she use to fell earlier
I have a complete scan of reports from the day she had a fall, to getting admitted to the hospital to the recent tests that were done
