Good way to put it."yeah,I broke pretty much my whole right hand,but am now left handed "
I still have stitches in and my hand is wrapped up and immobilised right now. But i go to the dr today. Hopefully he allows me to take the splint and wraps off. But my middle finger wont be moving until the titanium plate is removed. Then the physical theropy will begin. Heck i am still taking pain pills every few hours. But i think i will start getting better at walking a trigger with my left hand because of this injury. Got nothing but time to practice.

Maybe next time the maintanence department will fix the darn machine rather then me always having to do the repairs and daily maintaining of things around there.
Best you wait it out and take things extra slow and be cautious. Rather you wait it out and make sure you're fully healed before you start playing, rather than rushing it and risking injury to your hand again. And hopefully next time you'll keep your fingers on the outside of machines, instead of the insides.
Pics r coming. They are currently all on my phone and I can find the adapter to put them on my pc.

Yesterday was the most painful trip to physical theropy so far. They worked the heck out of my hand and it was pretty painful. They also broke the news that I have at least 8 more weeks of it too. They also are starting to sound a little discouraging and are saying that my middle finger may never work right again. This is going to be a really long fricking recovery. But I will prove them wrong!!!
If you do what your supposed to, it will be fine. My dad suffered a serious injury in his thumb, they call it "skiers thumb". It is some form of hyper extension. They said he will never be able to use it again, and he wouldn't be able to work, being he does physical work. As part of the physical therapy, he was supposed to bring down the blood out of it, by rubbing it. They wanted him to do it 3 times a day. I tell you, he must of did it 20 times a day. Now it is fine, except for it is a little harder to write and his hand cramps up from writing sooner. That's still 100x better than not being able to use your hand.

Now it is fine, except for it is a little harder to **** and his **** cramps up from ****ing sooner. That's still 100x better than not being able to use your ***.
Yeah, call me immature, but I'm up about 5 hours before I usually am, so you can deal with it.
