| | Options for treating fractured trapezium??
Fell 12/15/11, small fracture of Trapezium was not diagnosed till 12/30/11. I am in a hard wrist splint with thumb keeper now only removed for showering. Should I give in and get casted? If so, how long should I expect to be in a cast? Or is the splint a safe option and will it heal as well? I am concerned because I am supposed to go diving in Mexico in 3 weeks.
I have pretty much come to the realization that diving is out but still would love to be able to get in the water. - I would much prefer to go the splint route if it's safe, but I play a lot of golf, work out, etc. I don't want complications - it's my dominant hand.
