There's over 25 bones in the human hand so I guess they needed big words to separate them. At this point I can now button my pants so I'm happy.

Wikipedia helps.  Apparently there is a bone fractured in your wrist. What are they doing about it? Nothing?

They use all the big funky words to make them look smarter and justify the outrageous prices!

They have their own language so that they can communicate precisely with other doctors and nurses. This is similar to when we are talking about rebuilding engines or other parts on our tractors. They spend years learning their standard terminologies. It is the people that didn't learn to watch out for. I hope the hand heals soon. Good Luck, Rick

The description basically states you have a fracture or maybe multiple fractures in the outer "carpal" bone in your hand right under your pinky. 
The boutonniere deformity means your pinky is trying to curl into your hand. It may be cause by the bone pushing on the tendon or ligament going on the outside of your hand.

 

If you google "fracture of hamman" you can see the shape of the bone and how it has a "hook" or clinically called a "process". Sounds like you broke yours.

They get an extra  50 cents a letter.  Take it easy when doing the fancy 'high fives'.
