hi all
not sure if i'm posting in the right place...

i broke my wrist (colles fracture?) 2 weeks ago...doc did a reduction, casted it..xrays showed it was set a bit low..reset it, recasted it..seems ok However i have been having numbness in my thumb since day one ... it is on the tip of the thumb running down the outside..no pain at all, just tingly all the time..the middle joint looks bruised but doesnt hurt at all

doc didnt tell me anything about it and i wonder if the nerve is damaged?

thanks for any advice
