Re: pinky finger dislocation/fracture

I broke my left pinky playing basketball and needed surgery to have pins inserted. The pins have now been removed, but I still have swelling in the hand and especially in the fingers. I will be starting physical therapy on Wednesday. My surgeon whats me to start moving and bending my pinky and ring finger, but the swelling in the joints makes it both painful and difficult. What can I do for the swelling and will ice help at this point?
