Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Good morning, I am Dr Ruff, thank you for contacting us today
I am sorry to hear this, when did this happen?
Okay thanks, ***** ***** normal xray is reassuring. The swelling is more of a response from either bruising or soft tissue injury. This is part of healing and some people react much faster than others.
The best you can do is a warm or cold compress, and elevate the hand where possible. You can also add in a regular anti inflammatory such as Ibuprofen. There isn't much more you can do than this.
If pain was to persist more than a week without improving and the swelling is still there, I would suggest considering another xray at this point to reassess.
Is there anything else I can help you with?
