Can a brace on the sprained little finger be removed?
I have had a brace on it for almost 3 weeks it’s still pointing down about 45 degrees.
Should I should keep the brace on?
yes you should keep the brace on and repeat X-rays
Hi! Welcome to HealthcareMagic. Thanks for sharing your concerns with us. We will try to help you in the best way possible. First of all, it's sad to know what you had been going through lately.
Based on the history you have shared, you still need to keep the braces on as the angle of twist is improving but a repeat Xray and orthopedic surgeon review seem unavoidable to compare the angle of twist for initial incidence and to see the recovery.
Surgical correction may not be needed for recovery so far is quite reasonable but it persists in the same angle for another week or two, surgical fixation may be needed.
Meanwhile, analgesics like Acetaminophen or Ibuprofen and in severe pains more potent analgesics like tramadol or gabapentin may be needed. Supplements for calcium, D3, and Bisphosphonates may help with better recovery.
Wishing you a speedy recovery. Hope this has answered your query.
