I am not very clear with your query. Do you mean splint / cast a fracture? If yes, then yes.

doctor1 MD

Hello and welcome to HCM, Two and half months is an insufficient time for a fracture to heal. However, you need to consult your orthopedician for clinical assessment, a repeat X-ray to know the status of fracture healing. The clinical assessment will decide further plan of action. Thanks and take care Dr Shailja P Wahal

If you have a history of easy bruisability please get your complete blood picture, Platelet count , Bleeding time, Clotting time, PT/INR tests, Iron profile tests done to rule out any bleeding disorders. However if bruise occurred because you hit the knuckles /if due to trauma, ice the area intermittently for 1st 48hours. elevate the affected fingers. Hope this information was helpful to you .
