What should I do?

today during field hockey practice I got hit with a field hockey ball. it hit my first two fingers. it is swollen and bruised. I can bend them but it is painful. what should I do? please help.

Just use ice. If they were broken, you would not be able to bend them, they would be fatter than sausages, and you would be in tears. Have your mom look at them, I can't see your hand from here.

Get it checked. It's probably only bruised but better be sure it didn't get broken or sprained.

I would bet that they are just bruised badly. If there are white dots on the bruise that is a good indicator that they are broken.

Oh and Advil or ibuprofen (same thing) can help take the swelling down
