We went back to the hospital yesterday to have them release the pressure on my splint. I woke up in a lot of pain, mostly caused by the swelling in my wrist and the tightness of the splint. Both the orthopedist and my primary care physician had selfishly taken Friday off from work, so only the emergency room would help us!
My poor fingers looked and felt like sausages! The doctor cracked the splint open and the relief was immediate!
We went out for Cafe Rio therapy afterwards, which also made me feel much better!
