Broken right foot finger
24 Jan: A 10kg metal plate was dropped on my right foot in Gym. Lot of bleeding happened. Took TT injection. 25 Jan: General physician didn't suspect anything. 4 Feb: Xray taken and 'Proximal Phalanx of 5th Digit of Foot (Right)' broken. Ortho Surgeon wrapped a pinkish colored bandaid and 3 weeks rest. 5 Mar: 2nd Xray taken & Ortho Surgeon said "No new bone growth", so he applied below know slab and asked to revisit after 2 weeks. 24 Mar: 3rd Xray taken & Ortho surgeon said there isn't any "significant" new bone growth. He suggested CT Scan for confirmation. After confirmation he wants to diagnose the "cause" of lack of progress e) bone-growth and treat it. Then proceed further. Probable causes according to him: internal infection, some bone-growth disorder, something with calcium profile. But he asked me to get 2nd opinion from another ortho surgeon.
