Probably there is no need for surgery.
Hello dear and welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.
I already reviewed the attached report.
Your symptoms seem to be related to a broken finger.
The pilon fracture usually involves the ankle joint.
In my opinion, there is no need for surgery.
The treatment consists in immobilisation for at least three weeks.
An orthopedist may apply a splint to maintain the finger immobilised.
Meanwhile, you can use painkillers for the pain such as Ibuprofen 400 mg three tablets a day.
I also recommend you to rest and keep the area elevated.
The symptoms should recover completely in three to six weeks.
Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
