Long story short, I punched a wall from anger, I'm soo sure it broke my hand and my dad isn't home? What do I do to help it for the next half hour? (that's how long I have to wait to get to the hospital) I have ice on it RN.

Lay flat on your back and rest hand on a couple of stacked up pillows. Make sure to put a towel between you and the ice. Don't want an ice burn. If your ice melts try frozen peas. Hope you feel better.

Consider getting a hanging bag outside. When things get crazy you can go outside and punch it like crazy. Great stress reliever. I use mine all the time.

TY!!!! :c Are you okeh? You've been given good advice, keep ice on it, keep it elevated, don't let the ice directly touch your skin! Hang in there cutie!!! 👍

As well as icing it, keep it elevated above your heart. That is all you can do physically until a doctor sees you. The only other thing is to learn your lesson about controlling your anger.

Thanks.. Punching the wall was better than what I was going to do... I wasn't thinking clearly or like myself in that moment... :/

Ice it. Keep it above heart level. P.S. I just did the same thing yesterday but I broke my hand and pinky finger. YOu will probably get a cast. Also, THat type of fracture is called a boxers fracture. It is from punching things. I didn't punch a wall I fell on the ice and landed on my fist.
