Had my Dr. appt today. The resident ortho told me that I needed surgery and would need pins drilled into the bone to put it back together. Said that he was going to schedule the procedure for next week, then he left. He returned a few minutes later with the attending ortho who looked at my hand and the x-rays and said "we could do surgery, it's bad enough, but let's buddy tape it and put a cast on it instead".
I said that I just wanted it fixed right so it worked properly again. Since the attending is above the resident, it was done his way. I go back in 4 weeks for further x-rays.
