Dislocated finger

Yesterday I did something really stupid, I tripped over some wires (that should not have been there - my fault!) and I fell.  My left hand went down to save myself and when I looked at my hand my index finger was not in the right place, it was pointing upwards when it should have been straight.   (no photographs to show this).  I grabbed my keys, money and my mobile and asked a neighbour to take me to hospital.

The staff at the hospital were all quite facinated by the direction of my finger.  I was more concerned amout the pain of putting back into place.  I had quite a bit of gas and air and eventually they pulled it back into place.  It is now bound to the middle finger and looking a little swollen and bruised.  

The x-rays indicate no fracture but I have been asked ro go back next week to have it checked out.


  1. Yes, but it didn't hurt when I did. It just looked nasty and my main concern was getting to the hospital as I thought I had broken my finger. I think it hurts more now.

  2. Poor thing. I hope it'll mend soon and not give you pain for much longer...
