Ds had a finger injury playing rugby. I was planning on just strapping it to the next finger but the next day it went numb so on the advice of NHS direct we went to A&E. He'd fractured it through the growth plate and it needed splinting fro several weeks and hand therapy afterwards. I'm usually pretty relaxed about stuff like this so it all came as a big surprise that a small finger fracture would need so much attention! Op, definitely get it looked at.
