I know its hard to believe I'm STILL in Hand rehab. But, indeed I am. I'll say I heard a lot about how hideously painful hand therapy was going to be, and it really wasn't too bad. Unpleasant, but not like having bamboo shoots stuck under my fingernails.
Essentially my hand works ALMOST like it did before. There's a few things I can't do. I can not snap my fingers. I can't really hold some very thin silverware when I'm trying to wash it. i have a difficult time untwisting small items, such as needles from syringes, which wouldn;t be a big deal excepting that I do it like, 50 times a day.
I still have some unusual sensations in the fingers when bending them, and they are very tight if I don't stretch.
Overall though, I am better. I have to keep reminding myself how hard it was to do anything just a few weeks ago.
I hope I never have a similar accident. Never, ever, ever, ever.
