The thumb is doing much better

Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos

Now 42 days in cast number two and now a custom splint to stop me from using the thumb

I am now out if the splint and in PT to regain movement and it's a lot of work BUT with about 1/3 of the movement back it is looking good

The big danger of infection has passed and that is huge hurdle to get over

  1. Hi there. Stumbled across this blog while searching about sailboats. I did exactly the same thing to my left thumb 7 or 8 years ago (but on glass), and after religiously keeping it immobile and wearing the splints, I was lucky enough to have 100% range of motion by about 12 weeks. The tendon took 4 big sutures to reconnect, and then a dozen or so to close the skin. I eventually had them remove those sutures, as they felt awful sliding around under the skin, and now I only ever think about it when I notice the scar. Good luck getting back to normal.
