Patient :Im 15. Play varsity softball. A week ago I caught the ball wrong and had an immediate horrible pain in my thumb. Was pounding and throbbing for about 30 minutes. I placed my hand in an ice bucket for 20 min while squeezing a tennis ball. The swelling has gone down tremendessly and now I just have bruising. But I still can't catch a ball, the back of my thumb right above the knuckle I can't even touch. I still have mobility of my thumb. Do u think its fractured?
