Jwp, thank you for a new advice – it make sence. Are you a physiotherapist?
Kevo62, I hope that this topic (and my dramma) can help you. Also, maybe it is good idea that you write about your experience. After 6 weeks you will be at the same situation like me right now.
After 2 month
First I must say that, at the meantime, I have one more control before 3 weeks but they just change my splint and put a new one.
Yesterday, after full 8 weeks, I finally put off a splint from my finger. My skin is ruin and peel, tip of my finger is spiky (because split push my flesh but this can be repair), I don't feel any pain in normal position. My first (DIP) joint is straight; I can bend it a little.
But, right now, I am not happy!! My finger is still look like a piece of wood and I don't have a flexibility. Of course, I expect that flexibility will be problem with my DIP joints and I know that therapy waiting for me. But I didn't expect that I will have a problem with my second (PIP joint)!!!
Something block my PIP joint and because of this I can't bend my finger and I feel a pain at PIP (!!) when I try to make a fist! With all healthy finger (without bending a DIP) I can touch my palm with tip of finger (anyone of you can do it without bending a first joint). But with this finger I only bend it in position like I have a little ball in my hand but no more than that. Some persons tell me that it is because tendon is now fat or maybe because I didn't use that finger and it is lazy now – but I don't know what to think.
I only know that I am concerned.
Next week I will start with therapy and see what will be,…
