First of all I dont believe in Puttur treatment..It is always best to get a immediate x-ray done and continue with the POP set by orthopedician. Now what you can do is take a repeat x-ray and meet a orthopedician to discuss whether surgery is really needed or not and what other conservative treatment can be done for this.
