Basketball hit my mother's left thumb and there is a regular pain for some two years now. The skin becomes harder in that area. Also, that arm becomes thinner as compared to the other arm. Please help.

Thank you doctor,
Her main problem is the thumb. Yes, this was because of the basketball hit on the thumb two years ago. Initially, one doctor stretched the thumb for some days and also there is some swelling type skin below the thumb. This arm is a little thinner near the wrist. We have some original photos. Local doctors give only medicines to take and some hot water treatment, but there is no benefit and the problem remains as it is. My mother is 50 years old. Is there any surgery required for her condition?
