Hi all, this is my 1st post, I've signed up here to seek help. 5 months ago I broke my hand skateboarding. I took myself to the ER, the doctor tried setting the broken bone (in my right hand, the bone between my ring finger knuckle and wrist). So after this horrible pain the doctor was unable to set it properly and I was told I had to get surgery. So the day comes and I then had a metal pin put into the broken bone to secure it in place while it healed. About a month after the surgery my hand was still in alot of pain, I mean I suppose it should have been being that there was metal in my hand. I went through another surgery to get the pin taken out. My hand was still very swollen looking and still in alot of pain. Turns out, my bone had actually grew to about 2x its normal size in the healing process while the pin was still in there, I had told the doctor to remove the pin earlier because of this "growth" but he refused. Now I am still in alot of pain. My hand isn't useless but hurts very much whenever I use it and after using it. The bone never returned to its normal size and my finger is a little crooked now also. I am constantly in pain, I owe thousands of dollars in hospital bills, and no longer have health insurance. What I want to know is, what can I do to help myself? I'm a mechanic and its very hard working with this. Does anyone know if I possibly have a lawsuit on my hands? I need something to compensate for this pain. Any help is much appreciated, thank you.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
