Just wanting to ask anyone who can tell me the symptoms of a broken or fractured thumb.
DP smacked his thumb with a tool at work yesterday and looking at it it looks terrible. The swelling is ridiculous, at least double the size. Small amount of movement but not a lot. He said it's sore but he never lets on when something is painful, he could barely change a nappy last night without pain so I'd say it hurts more than he's letting on.
There's barely any bruising though? Is that a good or bad sign? Lol.
He's gone to work today but can't really move his thumb.
I'm trying to convince him to go to the doctor but that's like talking a brick wall. If I can get an idea of weather you ladies think it's possibly broken then I may have some more leverage haha
