I had a fall about 1 1/2 months ago and my two fingers on my right hand remain swollen and painful. I have tried ice packs,
exercise, analgesic rubs to no avail. I spoke to my rhematologist and she tells me that I may never get rid of the swelling in these fingers. Needless to say they are not very functional, and they look awful since I have very small hands. I had an exray and nothing is broken. Will I ever get rid of this swelling???
Please help it would be most appreciated and thanking you in advance for any adivise you may be able to offer.
