i punched a wall almost 3 weeks ago then fell on the wrist the next day b4 i went to the drs. i dislocated 2 fingers and my hand was swollen twice its normal size.. i was told i didnt have a fracture that they could see.. i was placed in a slint and told to come back if i have a problem... since than i was diagnosed with marfan syndrom (a connective tissue disorder) o and im on fentanyl patches and lyrica so i "shouldnt" feel any pain..... well its been almost 3 weeks like i said and ive regaind some motion in my hand and wrist but im in horrible pain over all my meds... the splint doesnt seem like its really immobilizing and working (ive had the same type of splints b4)... my mom said i should go back to the drs but i dont see what they could do differently... would they cast me even if there r no visable fratures (eventho i have this disorder (it causes my to hyperextend my joints btw)) please is it worth going back or a waste of money?
