Following on from the above, I hit myself with a spanner at work. It hurt a bit, cut my knuckle and then I didn't think much more of it.
Knuckle healed, but stayed stiff.
A couple of weeks later it swelled and pussed. I took a picture and then popped it. It started to swell again so I went to A&E.
They x rayed it, found a metal splinter in the joint and then removed it under general anaesthetic !
GA, that seams over the top for a knuckle, 'struth, I've had op's under local and 69 stitches
I guess it depends on the confidence of your doc.
You can't buy happiness but you can buy a bike and that's pretty close
