I went to get my broken finger X-rayed today again prior to my appointment with the surgeon tomorrow. I am quite dismayed, because the new X-ray doesn't obviously show any improvement over the last one -- to my untrained eye, it looks practically identical.
This greatly concerns me. I can't fully straighten the last joint, and I can't bend each joint beyond about 10 degrees. I have no idea if this is normal, or if I have some kind of damage to the inner workings of my finger. Aside from the bruising clearing up, I haven't been able to discern any improvement in the functionality of the finger.
Then to see the X-ray where the break is just as visible as ever (there doesn't appear to be any more mass in the middle, as I expected) and the jagged edges right where they were before just makes me more concerned.
The wait 'til my appointment with the surgeon tomorrow is going to be really long.
