Here is my hand update~ Then I'm moving on and posting good things again for a while! I'm sick of feeling sorry for myself~Last week was rough though and I have to allow myself that too...
So last week I went to my follow up Dr appointment, they were concerned that maybe the tendon repair had ruptured since my finger is not responding quite right. He sent me for an ultrasound on my finger and luckily the tendon appears in tact! Yay ~So what they are thinking now is that the scar tissue has adhered and it is preventing the tendon from working, so we are bumping up the physical therapy for the next few weeks. And keeping fingers crossed that the scar tissue will give a bit where it is stuck! Apparently I scar like a champion~ Who knew! :)
(Otherwise they may have to do another surgery to remove it, I'm hoping that will not have to happen).
This Wednesday I will get my splint off. I will still have a weak hand and a finger that does not work but it will be nice to be able to wash my hand at least, and shower without a trash bag!
Thank you for all of your kind thoughts~ It helps me so much~!!
