closed displaced fracture on the shaft of my fifth metacarpa

Hi, I'm new and on the 21St of December, I was diagnosed with a closed displaced fracture on the shaft of my fifth metacarpal bone (pinky finger). I go to the doctor on the 29th, and would like to know what to expect at the appointment. The bone is fractured right in the middle.

Hello and welcome to EHF !

I went through your query and i understand your concern.If the fracture is displaced the doctor will consider surgery to realign the bone and plates for support. Let them decide what is best for you and hope for the best.

Take care
