KuniMom Posted January 15, 2011 Share Posted January 15, 2011 My daughter had finger surgery about 2 weeks before we moved overseas. She had pins put in her finger, with a splint on it. One week after we got here, I took the pins out (that was kinda creepy). It's now been one more week. We've been buddy taping (we're supposed to do that for three weeks after pin removal), but it is still really swollen. It almost looks like it healed wrong. Her big knuckle, which she broke, is really large. Is it normal for it still to be this swollen? I can't really just call and make her an appointment here to have it looked at. I plan on trying to call the Dr. who did the surgery on Tuesday, since Monday is a holiday. I am just really concerned that it healed improperly.
