I broke my thumb on Thursday a week ago Went


Q: I broke my thumb on Thursday a week ago. Went to walk in clinic on Saturday. Did an X-ray and it is broke . The dr gAve me a splint and said it should be healed in a week. Well it's now a week later and still hurts a lot. Swelling has gone down for the most part and a little of the bruising is gone but still hurts. Should I see an orthopedic and should I have a hard cast. I have a job where I work it's my hands lol the time
