Hello, I was wondering what would happen if I broke
it normally takes 4 to 8 weeks for healing to occur
HI, thanks for using healthcare magic
A fracture of the hand can take 4 to 8 weeks to heal completely but at 2 weeks, some healing would have started.
New bone would have started within the first week of the fracture, over the next few weeks, this new bone hardens to try and maintain the positions of the bones involved. New bone normally forms around the broken areas to try to fix them together.
If the fracture is not displaced (the bones are aligned in the correct positions), then this is okay because the new bone would then cement the fractured bones back into the correct position.
If the bones are not aligned (not in the correct position), then it may mean that healing would have started into the incorrect position.
It is possible, since it is only two weeks then some treatment may be possible.
I hope this helps, feel free to ask any other questions
yes, there can be consequences
Yes, if the bones are not aligned in the correct position then there can be problems with healing properly and also resulting mobility and pain consequences
If the bones are already in the correct position/aligned properly, then there may not be any issues at all because they would heal as they should.
Imaging of the area would show the degree of current repair and dictate further management
