Major hand injury

28 July 2012 - 04:34 PM

Ok so this week has been bad for me. I got hurt at work. My right hand got caught between a rock and a hard place. Resulying in large cuts on all 4 fingers. The middle finger was completely broken just past the first knuckle and the tendon was cut about 75% of the way. My ring finger was fractured in 2 places and the nail was ripped out of the bed. This injury is season ending. The middle finger required a titanium plate and screw to fix the bone and they repaired the tendon. Ring finger was easier to fix and the nail might have been saved. The doctoer estimates a 10 to 12 week off work time and longer to get me back to full mobility.

My intention is to do this as sort of a record of my recovery positive or negative. As well as my hopeful return to the sport i love. I will post pics and what i a doing to help in my recovery.
